Saturday update: We have a winner…The photo is indeed Terry Skjersaa, see comments below. Thanks all! I’ll dig another one out of the archive for next Friday.
Friday evening update: Full brochure cover now published. It’s indeed the Sisters in Oregon, and while I thought Clyde was right about that being Mark Bridges we’d better check it out and find out for sure.
Till the snow flies, Fridays we’re having a modest competition to see who can first come up with the person and sometimes location in a photo from the Wild Snow archives. PRIZES: We are giving away SIX Backcountry Access packs, various models (thanks BCA). If you win, I’ll leave a public comment identifying your comment as the winner, and I’ll contact you in private via the private email you leave on your blog comment. If we have no winner by 9:00 MST the Monday after I post the photo, there will be no winner and the prize will wrap to the next Friday. For extra karma, if you know the answer, please comment with some story as well. I’m taking a risk with this one but I have faith in you guys, as I’m pretty certain who the person in the photo is but I’m not 100%.

Today’s hint, the photo above is from a 1995 ski company brochure cover, location is a scrappy place where you’ll find two beautiful sisters who love to date backcountry skiers. Name the guy and the mountain. Bonus points for the ski company.
(Note, professional magazine editors and publishers are not allowed to compete. Likewise for photographers who created the images. Once the photo is guessed I’ll add a photo credit if available — all photos that are possibly copyrighted are excerpted from historical published material in my archive and my use falls under “fair use” in copyright law. To that end, if appropriate and possible the photo will be displayed in context after the guessing is done. For example, if it’s on a magazine page we’ll display part of the page with the image in situ.)
