I got to spend the first couple weeks of February over on the left side of the country at Big White in Kelowna, BC.  We were there to produce a couple of shows covering the 2017 World Para Snowboard Championships.  I was there to help Gleam Media produce and edit the 2 hour long shows. When the races were on, I wandered around the hill and shot some pictures of some of the best snowboarders in the world.

Team USA boarder Michael Minor, 2017 Slalom Mens Upper Limb Silver Medallist
Darren Swift of Great Britain. Swifty is the first and currently only competing double above knee amputee snowboarder in the world. This course wasn't suitable for Swifty to compete, but that didn't keep him from getting a few training runs in. Pretty awesome.

Below is the first show we produced, a 48 minute recap of the Snowboard Cross final rounds.
