Drop Off

A snowboarder checks equipment after being dropped off by a helicopter in Revelstoke, British Columbia. "It is amazing how heli pilots operate their machine," says Your Shot photographer C. Kahn. "After a drop off, as they are off to pick up the next group, they just dive into the valley to take advantage of gravity and maximize fuel efficiency."
