I spent yesterday in the mountains north of Ketchum with a group of ski guides who work for Sun Valley Trekking. They were out reviewing techniques that both aid their guests while traveling on snow and how to rescue them if an injury were to occur. The guide’s seriousness toward their occupation was equally matched by their love of being in the mountains; not to mention their knowledge of weather, geology, and all things technical. I learned a lot and had a blast scrambling around photographing these athletes as they moved through their environment.
