Crown Jewels: Sony SnowCrown Ski & Snowboard Festival

The Sony SnowCrown Ski & Snowboard Festival, now in its fourth year, brings big-name athletes from all over the world to Blue Mountain’s slopes.

From March 13th -22nd, Olympic-calibre winter action sports – including Slopestyle, Halfpipe, and Big Air in freeski and snowboard disciplines – rule Ontario’s biggest resort. Last year’s event was televised in 90 countries on networks such as BBC and TSN and played host to 80,000 spectators and over 300 athletes. Below we’ve included a few selections from last year’s SnowCrown by ace shooters Marc Landry and Richard Roth:

“Perfect shooting conditions allowed for this signature Blue Mountain shot with bluebird sky over Georgian Bay. I shot much of the day at 400mm but got in tight at 70mm for max depth-of-focus on this one.” MARC LANDRY PHOTO.

“I shot most of the night alongside the jump with a wide lens to showcase the takeoff and landing but eventually made my way behind the lip for a tighter composition.” MARC LANDRY PHOTO.
