SKI Focus 2018/2019

This season's most stoke-inspiring images from the pages of SKI Magazine in review.

FLYING HIGH With the fog-shrouded Alps as his backdrop, Italian pro freeskier Christof Schenk catches big air off a kicker built for the Fabian Bösch Invitational late last spring on the Titlis Glacier near Engelberg, Switzerland. The FBI was conceived by Engelberg native Bösch, an X Games Aspen big-air gold medalist, after a long season sidelined due to a heel bruise. He convened some of the top names in freeskiing for the less-thanformal get-together. Oskar Enander caught this shot. “I had just got home from Bali, Indonesia, that morning but knew the weather was good and an evening session was planned,” he says. “I went up on the mountain around 4 p.m. and got this image just after 8 p.m.” Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens @ f/5.6, 1/1250sec, ISO 160

Ian McIntosh at Revelstoke, BC, by Blake Jorgensen.After a warm and foggy day, the clouds settled enough for photographer Blake Jorgensen and skiers Ian McIntosh, Kye Petersen, and Lynsey Dyer to ride to the top of British Columbia’s Revelstoke Mountain. Revelstoke, which sits in the Columbia Valley, is notoriously foggy during winter. But unless it’s storming, ascending a few thousand feet is all it takes to poke through to sunshine. “It was warm and the snow was getting pretty manky, so I set up under the cliff in this cave,” says Jorgensen. “Water and ice were dripping all over me and my gear.”


The Focus section of our magazine is where we showcase some of the best photographs of the year, and the stories behind how they were taken. Here is a collection of those images.
