When Jeff Curtes picked this photo of Dave Downing for his "Cliff Shot" category in the 1999 Winter Crystal Awards (Team Photographic Event), both he and Dave knew it wouldn't win the category- after all it isn't a cliff, but there was no jib category in this year's event. They agreed to sacrifice the possibility of winning a category because they hoped people would remember the image. Jeff also said, "Everything I've picked tonight, in m opinion, could be a cover shot or a spread in a snowboard magazine. One shot I took is this best snowboarding photo I've ever taken in my life."  That shit is this shot. Arlberg, Austria. Congratulations to Jeff and all the Photographers who competed in The Crystal Awards
