The Skiing Photos AMalgamated Series (SPAM) is FIS' way of stoking your fire for winter! Every-so-often we will be releasing a photo-amalgam, and offering the work as a FREE download to jazz up your desktop background. GIT SUM!

With an eastern flow promising to bring some fresh snow to the east for Christmas, and the west digging out from a rough commute on the Pineapple Express, let’s go into the holiday weekend with a bit of SPAM from FIS. As you may recall, the east coast contingent of the FIS got exceedingly lucky with a day of powder skiing high above an undercast last weekend. If you click on that link, and go look, you’ll surely realize that there was no way that day was going un-SPAM-ified. It was simply too pretty to not amalgamate some skiing photos. Here’s my favorite so far. The skier is Noah Harwood.
SPAM 11: Noah Harwood Skiing Powder above an Undercast

I’ll release a few more SPAMs from this day later this week in a single post. This one is looking like it’s going to be my favorite though.

If you like this SPAM you can download a higher resolution copy for your desktop background right here:

We also really appreciate it if you share this SPAM on facebook. However, if you really like the shot we’ve got mega-wide posters (42″) of this and every SPAM shot so far for sale for $70 shipped. They are printed at a local printer on demand in Montpelier, VT on super premium photo paper. That’s why they’re expensive. We can still print on the older non-photo-paper for $40 though if you prefer. The new photo paper is really incredible, and well worth it in our mind. Click here to get a sense of how much resolution and detail our posters have. Visit our SPAM SALE page to setup the order. In any case thanks for checking out FIS, and PRAY FOR SNOW!

    Sick shot man, love the undercast in the background! I’m ready to say ‘goodbye’ to rocks and snow snakes and ‘hello’ to a nice smooth base =)

      ha! i hear you… i’ll take another day like this though ANYtime.

      you snowboard right? It’s funny… (correct me if i’m misinterpreting this comment), but you snowboarders really don’t like it when you can’t charge… there’s no noodling on a snowboard huh?

      This day was a skier’s delight. we could noodle… hit a few rocks… get thrown off balance… then noodle some more and have a blast.

      I was talking to Christian though (the splitboarder who shows up all the time on FIS) and he was telling me he would have enjoyed being up there this day, but that it prolly would have been not so much fun in the riding dept for him if he couldn’t charge… said he can’t really noodle on a snowboard the way a skier can.


      anyway thanks for the comment. i think you owe me a bolton lap one of these days :P
