February Photo Winner

The winner of this month's photo contest is Amy Flygare of Benson, UT.

Amy's photo of her husband Eric raising a humongous powder cloud in the backcountry got our judges' collective motor running. It's also worth noting that Amy has now won two of our monthly competitions, giving her an even better chance of winning a snowboard in the second tier grand prize competition that will take place in April.

Several other pics were chosen by our judges as runners up, including these creamy powder turns submitted by Jescee Adams.

Devon Balet's photo of a rider bursting from the trees on a Venture Divide made us all yell "touchdown!"

Clayton Hamilton couldn't resist submitting this photo of his "pride and joy" (that's a Venture Divide, of course) on a recent backcountry outing in the San Juans. We loved this pic because we can see one of those chutes from town!

We loved Casey Lorenzen's dramatic black and white photo.

And finally, Scott Jones' photo elicited a deep belly laugh from just about everyone in the room - neck deep and loving it!

Many, many thanks to all of this month's entrants!

If you missed out on this round of Venture’s photo contest, you still have one final chance to get a shot at the grand prize – a brand spanking new Venture board. The last monthly competition will take place at the end of March. The monthly winners from September through March will then be entered into a second tier competition, to be judged in early April. The contest theme is "The Mountain Life" and anything goes - lifestyle, action, scenic, humor... as long as it reflects life in the mountains. Click here for details on how to enter.

Until next time, think snow!
