i couldnt make it for the finals for the first time since 1996 :(, but i was able to catch some pics durring practice a few days before. and it was actually nice since NOBODY else was there i could shoot away without getting ppl's heads in there, lol. also was able to get some tips from the motorola team photographer.

Great shots... what's the story with the guy in number 2 with the camera in the air? I can't believe that was in focus!

What kind of equipment was the Motorola photog using?

he was the motorola photographer. i dont know slr's that well, but i assume he had some real wide angle lens on there, it was prob just under 2" long. camera was a cannon, not sure of the model. it looked pricey though :D.

Those are pretty cool... I used to go to Stratton all the time... usually in the fall to take the gondola to the top and for some of the art festivals... but since I am not a skier or boarder have never really been there in the winter...
