USCSA Western Regional Championship Alpine Events

This last week I had the opportunity to shoot at the USCSA Western Regional Championships at Bogus Basin.  Two hundred twenty of the Northwests best collegiate alpine ski racers and freestyle athletes were converging for a three-day shootout to see which teams and individuals would be heading to the Nationals in Sun Valley in March.  
Snow on Wednesday and overnight meant that Thursday morning we awoke to the first significant snow accumulation in nearly a month.  No matter, JJ McCloud and the crew at Bogus had the racing surface prepared - we just had to move a few inches of snow off the firm base underneath and it was showtime!
