When it Snows in Aspen

It’s definitely been a slow winter this year with well under season average snowfall totals throughout North America. The story has been the same here in Aspen. We’ve been waiting for months now for the sky to darken and open up with big white flakes…anything more then just a couple inches. Our patience was rewarded last week when Ullr finally produced, dropping around 25 to 30 inches of snow between the mountains of Aspen/Snowmass. With the best conditions of the season and a much better base then we’ve had all winter, I set off with some friends to bring it back to our roots on Aspen Mountain. Powder skiing!

After the the sky cleared and the sun came out it was time to get out and shoot. This season I’ve been slow to get any real content out there due to the poor snow conditions and I was really excited to get these shots. I was fortunate enough to work with two talented photographers, Matt Power and Zach D. Luchs.

The highlight of the week was working with Zach. He’s very motivated, has a great eye for creative shots and works really hard.  It was a great experience to work with both Matt and Zach and I hope we can get out more next winter. Here are a few highlights.
