What happens when you invite four ski teams, a panel of industry elite and unleash them in the Andes for a week of unprecedented skiing and apres-ing? Mayhem, or what’s better known as the Sony’s Eye of the Condor.
The second annual photography and film event culminated with the inaugural iF3 La Parva in Santiago, Chile, where the teams (Discrete, Icelantic, Widsix and Chile) showcased their adventures from their time at Ski La Parva to a sprawling crowd of Chileans and industry endemics.
Team Discrete, who was notorious for going hard all day and going harder every single night, earned the coveted golden condor for their aesthetically pleasing and diverse photo portfolio. Chris Bezamat’s entries exhibit his keen creativity, artistic eye, and photographic finesse. Among his winning photos is a shot taken high atop an Andean peak during Discrete’s snow camping mission. Julian Carr said, “Bezamat’s photo was just incredible how he captured our zone, the elevation, the grandeur, Santiago lit up way down below, it was an amazing photo. All of his photos were off the charts.”
