"Big Mountain" (to the locals) is the ski hill in NW Montana. Great terrain from powder to groomed runs to terrain parks.

I went on an "icy" day. Locals were complaining about the conditions, but by east coast standards, I'd call it powder.

I'm a professional photographer living and working in Whitefish, Montana. I travel as much as I can with my beautiful wife Megan, and am always scheming a new adventure, or a new way to do an old trip. My passion is the outdoors, and getting people excited about recreating outside. By day, I teach PE and health at the local middle school, by night, I fight crime in a spandex jumpsuit... not really, but I do enjoy taking lots of pictures and working for cool outdoor companies when not at school throwing dodge balls at 8th graders.
