Nordic skiing and photography does mix

Filed under: Daily News,Tourism | Tags:,

So, you think you can Nordic ski. But, can you Nordic ski and take photos at the same time?

Professional photographers Xavier Fane and Raynor Czerwinski are out to show Nordic skiers how to take photos in the Gunnison-Crested Butte Valley, located in southwest Colorado.

The valley has emerged as a Nordic skiing hot spot with trails and events and groomed Nordic trails that number more than 100 kilometers of backcountry routes.

There are six Nordic photography workshops added to the lineup of events offered January to March. Photographers are set to show skiers how to photograph winter in a number of ways, accessing subject matter on Nordic skis or snowshoes.  Workshops cost $55 each and include a Nordic ski pass but not equipment.
