“Our first photo contest hosted in collaboration with @salomonbcfreeski was a huge success! The support this community showed for their local amateur creatives was inspiring and on top of getting to see some amazing photo slideshows, we raised $1410.25 for Whistler SAR (Search ands Rescue) through raffle tickets, hat sales, and our karma keg donated from @pembertonbrewingco
Huge shoutout to @captured_by_robert for taking home 1st place and some sweet skis, and @whistlerwango for taking home 2nd and a new RMU pack.BIG thank you to all of the contestants for sharing their work, our judges @entwistlephoto @markabma @c.dangerman_ (editor of SBC Skier Magazine) & @craigbarkerphoto, and everyone who showed up to support the mountain culture here in Whistler!”
