The Gathering v.4 presented by Salomon went off this past weekend at Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, B.C., living up to everyone’s expectations as a one-of-a-kind ski celebration. From professional photo workshops, wild après and parties, to skiing and riding fantastic powder conditions, everyone that attended had an incredible time savoring ski culture and networking, sharing and socializing.
Evening events were highlighted with an international lineup of guest presenters that entertained audiences during the All Star Film and Photo nights. Hosted by Mitchell Scott, stunning shows and stories were delivered by the following presenters:

The week of the Gathering kicked off with two photo workshops presented by Mark Shapiro, the godfather of ski photography. Participants learned everything from camera and shooting basics to the finer points of action photography. GoPro also presented a contest for the best photos taken during the Gathering with a GoPro camera. Salomon was on hand all weekend with a huge selection of demo skis featuring Salomon’s new Guardian touring binding.
The Gathering brings together sport “insiders” and personalities that speak to the culture and history of skiing by featuring the images, stories and the people behind them. This high-energy event presents a unique reflection on skiing and mountain culture…where it has been…. and where it is going. While the collective passion for skiing is the core of the event, The Gathering’s main focus is to ski and to showcase unique photo and film presentations by select artists, athletes and storytellers.
The Gathering is all about the lore of skiing, about generational sharing and about passing things down.
The Gathering v.5 returns to Red in March 2013!
