To commemorate the winter season, EBS hosted a photo contest. We received more than 60 amazing shots from 44 participants, but a few stood out. Enjoy these last looks at the season through the eyes of our readers.
First Place: KG Content
Our first place photo was taken by Kirby Grubaugh on Feb. 7. The photo depicts a snowboarder launching off a jump with glittering snow suspended in the foreground. Grubaugh built the jump with Rhett Leuzinger and waited a whole month before enough snow had fallen for safe use.
From the photographer:
“The person in the photo is Al “Daddy” Syverson who has one of my favorite methods in the game, which is the grab performed in this photo. Al is the head terrain park groomer at Big Sky Resort and spends a lot of time enjoying the fruits of his labor…and it shows!”
Second Place: Richard Hayes
Richard Hayes took this beautiful photo of a snowcat on Andesite Mountain while working a graveyard shift. The composition of the moon, Lone Mountain and the snowcat makes for a stunning Winter Solstice capture this past December.
Third Place: Ryan Cigler
Fiona makes the final ascent of her ski tour with photographer Ryan Cigler as the sun starts its evening retreat. Little did Cigler know that Fiona had packed a full charcuterie spread that the pair enjoyed before dropping in, chasing the setting sun.
