Henrik & Kaya: Skiers of the Year

Totaling 50,000 votes between the two, FT’s own Henrik Harlaut (EDollo) and Kaya Turski both won Freeskier‘s Skier of the Year Contest for 2011. Both recently added to the Full Tilt Team, Henrik and Kaya have just been on point this winter. For Henrik it’s not necessarily about landing a podium, but more about his unmatched style and fluid skiing ability. Add that with his huge following (who happen to have computers) and bam, we got a winner!

Kaya has also been killin it this year, dominating the freeskiing tour winning Winter X Games in Aspen & Tignes, Dew Tour Overall Winner and US Grand Prix. To say she’s in the zone is an understatement.

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.”
