The 2011 TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival (WSSF) was the most exciting festival in years, with big events and big athletes making it to Whistler, B.C., April 15-24, to compete and also participate in all of the off hill action. The Blake Jorgenson Gallery co-hosted a Powder and Snowboarder Photo Annual Exhibit this year showcasing their favorite images from the season. Featuring both ski and snowboard images of the season from some of the best photographers in the sports made it a popular exhibit to check out. The opening reception was over capacity all night and was one of the party highlights of the festival, following up on the previous night wrapping up the Pro Photographer Showdown (ed.’s note: which, Blake Jorgenson won). Thanks to Redbull, Oakley, and The Westin for helping to produce this exhibit and allow for a portion of proceeds to be donated to relief for Japan.
