So for the last two weeks I was in Lake Louise, photographing Alpine Skiing FIS World Cups for USA TODAY Sports. First it was men and for the last week it was women's turn. I photographed the finish line area... not much action, but I did my best to show it all :) There were three training run days followed by 3 race days. Here are some of my favourite images I took throughout the week in no particular order.

This whole thing was a Lindsey Vonn show.. Publications use all kinds of photos of her, at the lodge, on a chairlift, walking around, etc.
