The 2011 World Ski and Snowboard Festival photography up on the mountain is always great with excellent Spring season action sports. These photos are from the Slopestyle event held on Blackcomb mountain during the festival. Working as an event photographer to cover these events is lots of fun and Whistler Blackcomb mountains are a great locations. It is always great to catch the athletes jumping into the air and using the mountains across the valley as the background. Looks great with the tips of the mountains covered in snow when taking this type of news photograph at Whistler Blackcomb resort in BC, Canada. I always shoot this type of mountain sports event using the Canon 100 MM to 400 MM telephoto lens which is need to be able to achieve the angle of the athletes and the mountains in the background.
