This photo, of skier Carston Oliver by photographer Grant Gunderson, won second choice in our Readers' Choice awards for Skiing Magazine's Best Photo of the Year. “Mt. Baker doesn’t get that many sunny days a year. When it finally goes bluebird, there’s no place with a better backdrop for photos and better snow for the athletes to go huge.”
