BEHIND THE LENS: Whistler freshies, by Grant Gunderson

James Heim

Grant Gunderson travels the world many times over. From Iceland, Patagonia, Japan and anywhere else there’s snow or dirt, he’s likely been there. For this week’s submission of #InspirationalTuesday the world-renowned photographer has this beauty from Whistler.

The best powder days are the surprise ones. This particular day, skier James Heim and I headed up to Whistler for what we expected to be a mellow day of skiing as the resort was only reporting a few inches of fresh. We were presently surprised to find really-deep conditions that only got deeper as the day went on. Just goes to show, you don’t know if you don’t go.
