In the December issue, Skiing Magazine compiled the 24 favorite photos of the year. Then they asked for readers help in narrowing it down to the Best Photo of the Year. The online votes have been tallied and this shot of Wiley Miller at Haines (Alaska) by Jeff Cricco/Level 1 Productions is the winner of the Readers' Choice Award for Best Photo of the Year for Skiing Magazine.
"This was shot on the first run of the trip. The crew tried to get out the previous day, but the heli landed on a cornice that broke loose. They called it a day after that", said Jeff Cricco.
