The Deep Winter Photo Challenge is poised to live up to its name this year.

Though it was a slow start to the season, storms have been steadily rolling in to Whistler creating some prime conditions for the six professional photographers who are taking part in the annual event.

This year’s selection of talent includes Ming T. Poon, based in Lake Tahoe, California; Vermont’s Jesse Dawson (and the sole female photographer); Jake Dyson, formerly with Sherpas Cinema; Vancouver writer and photographer Bruin Alexander; Squamish’s Kieran Brownie; and Josh Dooley, based in Pemberton.

The group will be sent out “to capture athletes in their natural mountain habitats” over 72 hours and then tasked with editing the best images into a five-minute slideshow.

The results will be shown at an event at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler on Jan. 11. The winner, meanwhile, will be crowned the King or Queen of Storms and receive prize money.

Tickets for the show are $22.54 on sale now at here.
