Glacier Hopping

The Shot: Josh Daiek hucks a glacier near Whistler, British Columbia.

The Photographer: Grant Gunderson

The Full Story: Professional skier Josh Daiek and his buddy, action sports photographer Grant Gunderson were out sled-skiing (using a snowmobile to access sick terrain) north of Whistler, on the Pemberton Ice Cap, home of 2,000-foot decants, hair-raising chutes, and 50-degree pitches. As Gunderson told Outside magazine, they had just reached the edge of the glacier when Daiek “decided to air over the entire wall of glacier ice.”
