On the Jump Hill, Seefeld

Three from the ski jump in Seefeld, Austria. I know very little about ski jumping and very little about how to photograph it, but it is really interesting to be on the jump, hearing the jumpers hurtle down the inrun, whistle through space and land, watching them as they ride the air. Plus there’s a great view from up there.

Seefeld World Nordic Championships #3


Catching up with a few days of racing at Seefeld. Above, Norway’s Therese Johaug exults after winning the women’s 15-k skiathlon. She had been suspended (in a baffling move by ski authorities) from competition for 18 months for using a lip cream that contained a steroid, and, in her first world championship since, she was ready to strike back. Below, Sweden’s Maja Dahlqvist embracing teammate Stina Nilsson after the two won the team sprint; the US’s Jessie Diggins is in the background. The rest are from the skiathlon and team sprint.

Seefeld Nordic World Championships #1

Quick note from Seefeld, Austria: Here at the FIS Nordic World Championships in a high mountain valley near Innsbruck, feet-deep in snow, but with temperatures in the 40s. Racing starts Thursday, but the competition center is filled with coaches and athletes trying wax and skis and checking out the courses. Above, Alaska Pacific University coach Erik Flora with APU and US Ski Team member Sadie Bjornsen. Olympic rings in the bottom photo are at the Bergisel ski jump in Innsbruck. Will try to continue posting, but it gets busy quickly. Photos will also be on Fasterskier.com and Instagram @lazenbyphoto. Will add gallery later.
