2013 Skoki Winter from jasonmacqueen on Vimeo.
A quintessential Canadian experience. Even William and Kate from the British Royal family managed a stay while they were in Canada. You can find their names in the guest book when you go there. This video was created for the Lake Louise Ski Area to aid Skoki marketing efforts.
A fun day out with friends. Fantastic spring conditions meant the only thing we were concerned about was cornices falling off overhanging cliffs. That and sunburn!
When Liz and James asked me to photograph their special day on the slopes I could not have been happier. All the fun of a wedding combined with a day on the slopes! In spectacular mountain fashion the weather suddenly changed from a blue sky to heavy snow during the ceremony. The bridal party and bride were quite simply heroic.
In snowboard rail jams competitors hit rail features and perform tricks for the crowd and spectators. As they pass commentators will call out what they perform adding humorous additions when riders fall.
One of my favorite events held at the Lake Louise Ski Area. Competitors ski the most challenging route down the mountain that they can. Points are scored through skiing aggressively and pulling tricks.
