Inquisitive Attitudes With Reuben Krabbe

Inquisitive Attitudes With Reuben Krabbe

I asked pro photographer, Reuben Krabbe, to give me an impression of what a “day in the life” of his world is like. He said he’d have to give me a week or even a month to really get an understanding of what he does.

When a Backcountry Ski Cut Goes Wrong

In an instant, I was heading downhill in a fast-moving stiff slab. I headed off to the right, watching my tips reach solid snow, but then the rushing torrent of snow caught the tails of my skis. I was turned 360 degrees up in the air. In the midst of this all, I felt my left femur spiral and facture. I was like a dry stick compared to the force being generated by the fast moving avalanche.
