JUST WITHIN REACH

SKI - - FOCUS -

Bri­tish Columbia’s Tan­talus range can be seen from the Sea to Sky High­way en route to Whistler, but get­ting to it is not as easy as it seems. “It’s only ac­ces­si­ble by multi-day vis­cous bush­whack­ing or a heli flight,” says pho­tog­ra­pher Rueben Krabbe, who’s based in Whistler but has only ven­tured into the Tan­talus twice be­fore. This shot of ath­lete James McSkim­ming was snapped on Dec. 16, “in­cred­i­bly early for this area, which is nor­mally heav­ily crevassed un­til later in the win­ter,” Krabbe says. Strong early-sea­son snow­fall filled it in, though, and Krabbe and McSkim­ming en­joyed the best Tan­talus lines they’d ever skied. Nikon D750, Nikon 70-200 f/4 lens @ f/11, 1/1000sec, ISO 400
