POV Medical Tow Sled Evac in the Fresh Powder

During my senior year of high school at the Lowell Whiteman School I created an independent study in photography class, yeah, easy “A”. My teacher, Judy Duchnese was also a photographer and we had a blast during this semester long class. Because I was required to have a project, I chose the daily operations of the Steamboat Ski Corp, which oversaw the operations of the Steamboat Springs Ski Area. I got to climb the gondola towers, take part in  avalanche prevention, and much more. One of my most interesting photos though was how they evacuated people off the mountain in a stretcher.

I created this photo as we moved down Vagabond and it was not an easy shoot. You can see the snow was dumping, which meant it was building up on my lens and because I was strapped in like an injured skier, I had very little movement. At this point in my life, for the life of me I can’t remember the ski patrol officer who took me down the mountain, but we did have some pre-discussed fun, like going fast in certain sections, and catching some air here and there. This WAS NOT the average tow down the hill.
