Scott Markewitz is one of the best ski photographers in the business. And from February 4-7, he's teaching the inaugural Scott Markewitz Photography Workshop at Snowbird, Utah. It's a three-day instructional workshop for all levels of photographers who want to learn to take better action and scenic shots. Here is a gallery of Markewitz's work and more info on the workshop.
Welcome to the throwdown, year one, also known as ski cross. A Winter X Games event since 1998, ski cross premieres this year as an event in the Winter Olympics. If you are wondering about gold, make sure to watch the two former ski racers, Daron Rahlves and Casey Puckett, participating in the event.
In one season Karine Falck-Pedersen transitioned from national champion ski-racer to professional big-mountain skier. Last winter, she earned herself a 5th-place ranking overall in the Freeskiing World Tour and a segment in Warren Miller’s new film Dynasty.
