The Ski Salt Lake Shootout inaugural competition produced magazine covers and images published worldwide. The shootout returned for its sophomore run Feb. 22-26, 2009 and Solitude provided the background for many memorable images sure to grace a few magazine pages next winter! Photographers and athletes were paired to battle for cash prizes and bragging rights as they attempt to capture the magic of the Cottonwood Canyon resorts and Salt Lake City through the lens.

This years list of photographers should be names familiar to anyone who peruses the image galleries of ski magzines:Ilja Herb, Grant Gunderson, Aryeh Copa, Drew Stocklein, Justin Cash, Mark Fisher, Alexa Miller and Court Leve.
