Exploring Colorado’s Wintery World: a Photographic Journey

Event Date Mon Dec 11, 2017
Event Time 6 AM
The Antlers at Vail680 W. Lionshead Place

There are many ways to enjoy winter in Colorado, but one of the best ways is to immerse yourself in the white stuff. Join the Vail Symposium for a multi-media presentation by ski-mountaineer Dr. Jon Kedrowski and nature photographer John Fielder derived from their new books “Classic Colorado Ski Descents” and “A Colorado Winter.” The two will share stories from their combined 60 years of exploring our wintry world, each with their own unique perspective.

Travel Colorado with ski mountaineer Dr. Jon Kedrowski as he guides you to some of the best ski descents the state has to offer. Kedrowski discusses preparation, gear selection, planning, and analysis of weather and snowpack for skiing in the backcountry. With his photography, he highlights many of the 300 different ski routes and ski descents showcased in his new guidebook.

John Fielder will provide the artistic side. With a backdrop of beautiful music, Fielder shares his favorite scenes during 40 years of exploring the Colorado backcountry on skis. This is also a great opportunity for photographers to learn techniques for capturing in a monochromatic environment.

This program is presented in partnership with the Vail Public Library
