Photography storm brewing

Tiring of action sports photographers only depicting bluebird days? Whistler-Blackcomb officials, in partnership with Arc’teryx, have launched a new photography competition, challenging North America’s top action photographers to capture the awesome winter weather January reaps.

The Deep Winter Photo Challenge will come to a head with competitors showcasing their work at a public presentation Saturday, Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. at MY Millennium Place.

Five photographers will team up with athletes of their choosing and spend three days inbounds shooting on Whistler and Blackcomb between Jan. 3 and 6.

The five competitors include Whistler ski photography legend Paul Morrison; Future Snowboarding Magazine photo editor and long-time Whistler snowboard photographer Dano Pendygrasse; Snowboarder Magazine ’s senior photographer Oli Gagnon; contributing photographer to Transworld Snowboarding and Snowboard Canada Dice-K Maru; and 2005’s Powder Magazine Photo of the Year winner Bryn Hughes.

The five will compete for $3,250 in prize money and the title, King of Storms.

Tickets for the show are $10, which includes the slide show and after party.


No-parent zone for New Year’s

X-Life is bringing a rock circus to town for New Year’s Eve at the Telus Conference Centre as part of First Night celebrations.

Youth ages 13 to 18 will host an awesome night of live bands, light shows, circus acts and Casino Royale and Nintendo Wii on the big screen — and best of all, this is a no-parents zone, giving kids the freedom to mosh, surf and scream their way into a fun-filled night.
