Colorado: At Arapahoe Basin, the first faces of the winter season
Inspired by a portrait series of New York City marathon runners, OnTheSnow's Tim Shisler, photo and video editor, and Liam Doran, senior photographer, knew they wanted to capture the faces of the first skiers and boarders of winter. They chose to try their hand at Arapahoe Basin because it's usually an early opener. When the resort opened its doors (figuratively speaking, of course), they captured these portraits. Shisler writes, "During the shoot Liam coached the participants to show their true personality and not just smile blankly at the camera. This is where Liam stands out. He's a people person, knows the ski industry like the back of his hand and can get you to laugh. It's a gift." These portraits may have you looking to the Southern California mountains and wondering when you can sneak a day to play.
