Fresh Snow and Perfect Light: A Fresh Batch of Action Shots from Grant Myrdal

All images by Grant Myrdal

It is always a pleasure to open up a fresh batch of action photos from Grant Myrdal.

Grant is the diehard slope-side photographer who is out on the mountain capturing the joy of skiing and snowboarding for riders of all ability levels.

Grant works in all conditions. But like most of us, he likes the powder days best. In fact, Grant probably loves powder as much as anyone you’ve ever met.

His love for the fresh and the fluffy shines through in these action shots. All images were captured at Mt. Hood Meadows during our wild and wonderful snow season of 2020-21.


If you’ve never met Grant before, I would recommend it. He’s got a ton of stories from his days as a competitive surfer and a high-level surf photographer, not to mention his many adventures on the slopes of Mount Hood.

Grant does private shoots and affordable season photo passes for Mount Hood regulars, in addition to the individual shots that he has organized by dates on his Smug Mug website. The pricing and details can be found here.

Oh, yeah, Grant is also a fine snowboarder and no doubt one of the finest to come out of South Africa, as you can see from this shot of him by the super-talented Mount Hood photographer, Richard Hallman:

Feast your eyes, wax your boards, and see you up there!
