Backcountry Skiing Crystal Mountain, Washington
"The lighting and light snow were unreal for so early in the year," says skier Tyler Ceccanti of this early December backcountry skiing shoot on Washington’s Crystal Mountain with photographer Ian Coble. Though Ceccanti has spent the last four years sampling the world’s best terrain as a pro, the 22-year-old says there’s no place like home: "I grew up exploring this mountain every weekend and I love being here," says Ceccanti who still lives in nearby Lake Tapps. "It also has some of the best skiing in the Northwest and a beautiful view."
