“Let me open both doors before you come in. Please, no stampede.” Came the words from a slightly anxious looking Fairmont employee as she opened the doors to the 6th Arc’teryx Deep Winter Photo Challenge. Like Germans at a pool, people run to chairs throwing jackets, scarves, hats and gloves down to secure their seat for the show. Feet Banks, looking dapper in a grey waistcoat and shirt, introduces the six photographers; Reuben Krabbe, Steve Lloyd, Mark Gribbon, Mason Mashon, Jussi Grznar and Robin O’Neill. With a bottle of beer in hand I sit back and enjoy a trip through the sunniest Deep Winter in Whistler history.
