There's something about the night crew at a ski area. We're talking about the graveyard shift groomers who drive snowcats while everyone else is sleeping or partying. They're hard-working folks who come out under the cloak of darkness to get the mountain primed for the next day. We rarely see them but we see -- and appreciate -- the work that they do.
During Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo., photographer Chip Kalback decided to spend an evening with the Aspen Mountain snowcat drivers, including Derrin Carelli, Pat Cooke, Brad Dingess and others, to document the hard work they put in every night for us skiers and snowboarders to enjoy every day.
