Chionophiles

by Jakob Siegel


You can’t take the mountain out of the man, but you can take the man out of the mountain.

Coloradoans have been shredding the Rocky Mountains dating back to the early 1900's.
Since the first ski resorts opened their doors here in Colorado, there has been significant change in the industry. Chionophiles uncovers the one constant through all these years; the individuals who have a shared indescribable passion for going broke while rapidly heading nowhere at great personal risk.

Chionophiles is a 20 image digital photo series. The stills are displayed in digital form on a website in a single page exhibition gallery.
