The Yellow Line

Guess the location of Grant Gunderson's photos and win a pair of Wagner Custom skis.
posted: 10/07/2009
Pillow Gap Location Y

No lift tickets. No catwalks. No fights over cafeteria real estate. You need a pickup, some friends, and an average sense of direction. Park at the top of a snowy pass, hike a long or short distance, then click in and aim for the road. Stick out your thumb. Repeat. Photographer Grant Gunderson won’t tell you the three locations where he took these photos. Says he wants to keep the lines untracked. Each shot required countless exploratory missions to find the best road-accessed terrain. Do the locations (which we’ll call X, Y, and Z) look familiar? Look for our hints. Send your best guesses for Locations X, Y, and Z to goggletan@skiingmag.com. Please include the highway number, resort or pass name, and state. The winner gets  a pair of Wagner Custom skis. Deadline is November 15.

More details about that awesome prize: The contest winner gets a pair of Wagner Custom Skis with a solid color or topsheet design graphic. The custom skis include: Bomber vertical sidewall construction. Clear grained, all-wood core for lively feel, responsiveness, and great durability. Oversized steel edges and extra thick bases for longevity. Custom-fit and optimized for YOU according to length, width, sidecut, camber, tip/tail shapes, overall stiffness, flex pattern, and material layup. www.wagnerskis.com
