Production companies including Matchstick Productions (MSP Films), Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Poor Boyz Productions brought their film crews and the best photographers on snow were represented in force.

Skiers from Whistler, Squaw, AK,  Utah, Mammoth, Sun Valley, Montana,Telluride and even Vail.  The sickest birds on the planet show up in Aspen to share The Brotherhood of the POW.  These are people who "send it" for a living. Its not just the on-screen performers, its also the filmers and shooters who risk their lives in the "no fall zone" to get the stuff on camera.  It's clear that everyone in the room digs powder. It's a celebration unlike any other, its a special bond, a commonality, a kinship.......
