Backcountry employee rockin' out sweet pics

Our very own Re Wikstrom in our photo department killed it this last week in the Ski Salt Lake SHOOTOUT. Re won 1st place in the Mountain Lifestyle category and was awarded $1,000 for her awesomeness. The contest had 7 photographers who specialize in photos you have probably seen in your ski mag on your coffee table. The shooting took place from March 3-7th and Re had actually just started shooting with her athlete, Pip Hunt, a week before the contest.

Re said the contest was "really an amazing opportunity to be shooting with such well known photographers."

The picture really sums up a great ski day; sunset, bluebird, clacking your heels while balancing skis and poles. Great job Re, way to go!

Also our Backcountry.com athlete Sage Cattabriga-Alosa was shown in the first place photo for Air shot by Bryan Ralph. It looks like he has those ski rockets from that movie Ski Patrol, classic.

Huge props to the photogs and the athletes for both KILLING it in the shootout. The two pictures you posted are great, and the overall winner by Gunderson was probably one of the best skiing pictures I have ever seen.

Congrats to the winners, and I hope/expect to see more of the "amateur" photog's stuff in the ski mags sooner rather than later...
