Suzanne Graham on the Freeskier Cover

Utah native and Full Tilt skier Suzanne Graham tossed herself and her Full Tilt Soul Sisters off this this sizeable cliff to snag the cover of Freeskier Magazine‘s November Womens Edition. Erik Seo was the trigger man for the shot and here’s a few words from Suz about how it came to be:

Erik Seo, Jen Hudak, and I headed up to Alta for a 7 AM chair hoping we could make it out to this specific area before anybody else. The goal of the day was to get some good shots of us sending it off some cliffs. When we got out there we weren’t totally sure how soft the landings were so we spent some time assessing the situation. Nobody had been out there since it snowed and with a cliff that big the snow really needs to be deep and soft enough- after throwing a lot of snowballs into the landing and building a small lip off the cliff I decided to give it a shot first. The photo on the cover was from the first hit of the day, where I decided to go for it off the bat and do one of my favorite things in the world, a big laid out back flip. Both of us got some fantastic shots (huge thanks to Seo) and called it a day early to go ski some pow. :)” – Suz (http://suzgraham.com/)

Seth Morrison on Freeskier Magazine Cover

Seth Morrison and his new pro model boot graced the cover of the Freeskier Magazine Buyers Guide this September. Congrats Seth!

A bit about the shot from Seth The shot came from a trip we did with Oakley while filming TGR’s “Re:Session”. We were at Bell 2 with Last Frontier, this is in Northern BC. This shot came about as we were working the lower section of a run after hitting a wind lip on the upper section. One turner with a nice part of a glacier that’s out of focus in the background. It was a fun trip and a great place, hope we get to go back. It’s great to check out new terrain.”

PEP FUJAS ON SETH MORRISON

He really lets his actions speak more than his words. He’s not going out and claiming he’s going to do something. He just goes and does it without really knowing what he’s going to do. When we were in Norway a few years back, he would pick out the biggest diving board on each face, and it was really easy for him to pick the lines because he knew we weren’t going to pick them. He was going to send it off the biggest diving board possible and most likely throw a back or front flip.

I really enjoy his aggressive turns that are really fluid. He really gets into those turns. The most I take from him is the way he lays into his skis. He has full control of every part of his ski and friggin’ rips into them.
