p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nordic Combined - Altius Open


Was at the Altius Nordic Ski Club competition yesterday in Calgary, Alberta. All levels of athletes, from beginner right up to the Alberta Team were competing. As you can see from the two pictures, the weather changed somewhat (!!) from the morning portion of the competition to the afternoon part.

For the uninitiated, Nordic Combined (an Olympic sport) is the combination of distance ski jumping and cross country skiing.







Jumping the K63 tower in the shadow of the K114 (used in the Calgary 88 Olympics)








And, old man winter reminding us that Calgary in February can be cold & windy....

Thanks for looking

That first shot is amazing! An excellent capture for sure. The second is good too, but... LOVE that first one!

Thanks for the feedback. The jumping portion is fun to shoot and since that was a club level competition, you can get right beside the the hill they fly over.
