A gift for you: ski wallpaper to get you stoked for winter

Every year, we show a little love to our members by offering a digital download of a rad photo captured by an MEC Ambassador. Feast your eyes on this beauty of a shot captured by Ambassador and pro ski photographer Reuben Krabbe.

At first glance, you might think it’s Batman blazing through Gotham City, but in reality, it’s skier Noah Maisonet at Lake Louise resort in Alberta. As a Calgarian, Reuben grew up skiing in the Rockies. “Going back to visit and shoot photos is always a treat,” he says.
