More rider shots...

This was one of the shots I got before I trashed my flash. I found a bunch of British guys hitting this bench in a trail that runs down from Mottaret to Meribel, it was towards the end of the day so I set up some flashes and started shooting (well I'd been boarding with my light stands all day so I was damned if I was going to go home empty handed). The only problem was that there was heavy snow that was soaking everything - plastic bags on the flashes kept them fairly safe but I was worried about my 5D quitting in the moisture. It held out, and this is one of the sets from a group that I got. Lesson learned - need more powerful flashes and bigger plastic bags (...oh and a team of assistants)
