On The Cover
As usual for most magazines, choosing the photo for the cover was generating a lot of discussion as we went into production on this year’s mag. We had narrowed it down to four or five possibilities when a few shots arrived from Christian Pondella, one of the world’s leading snow photographers. Two of his photos, both of Bernie Rosow and both shot in Mammoth this past winter, immediately took pole position. One B&W, one colour, both pure skiing. We went for the colour.
