By Erik Roner | September 4th, 2008
I just returned from the Skiing Magazine 2008 South American Photo Challenge held in Portillo, Chile. 5 photographers are invited and each chooses an athlete to work with for a 5 day period. There are 5 main categories to photograph... powder, air, creative angle, lifestyle and big mountain. The final day each team put together a slide show to show case their work for judges and the community. The best of these photos will be published in the February issue of Skiing Magazine.The competition was fierce and each team worked really hard in all conditions. At first the snow was hard pack but halfway through we were blessed with new snow and wind, changing the entire competition.I had a great trip with a great group of riders and photographers. Each team had some amazing shots and I�m glad I do not have to judge the winner of each category. Make sure to check out the February issue of Skiing Magazine to see all the hard work.** The intro to our slideshow**** These are all the amenities in Portillo. Its like a bubble with sweet terrain.**** Some of the surrounding Andes!**** My photographer and team capitan Adam Clark.**** Hamming it up for our slide show**** more slide show work...**** Hiking up the Super C ... a 2 hour hike to 13,600 feet.
