The 2019 edition of Arcteryx King of Dolomites, the photo contest in the Pale di San Martino range aimed at shooting the most beautiful freeride, ski or snowboard photo of the Dolomites, was won on Sunday by Swiss photographer Marc Obrist with a photo of rider Raphael Öttl. Special mentions to outdoor photographers Ruggero Arena and Giovanni Danieli.

After two days of crystal-clear sky and sunny weather, the seventh edition of the Arc’teryx King of Dolomites ended on Sunday with a wonderful sunset in the Pale di San Martino, Dolomites. A crowd of more than 200 people admired the pictures taken during the last two days in the San Martino di Castrozza area by the 25 teams which took part in the contest, for a total amount of about 75 participants. A very positive result in terms of numbers, which confirm year after year the international success of the event.

The King of Dolomites of this seventh edition is Swiss photographer Marc Obrist who won with a great photo of rider Raphael Öttl, taken on the snow shaped by the wind and lights. "Always changing structures of snow fading with the elements. Becoming drifting sparkles in the sky roaming as far as the wind will carry them" is the quote that the winning team decided to submit together with the winning shot, their interpretation of the KOD2019 theme "Let there be light".

The Action and Alpinism – the special award in memory of Alessandro Miola – themes were won by Ruggero Arena while Giovanni Danieli won the Landscape theme. Giovanni Danieli‘s photo of the rider Giovanni Zaccaria wins the 4actionsports special prize and it will be on the cover of the next Issue of the magazine. The level of the submitted pictures was once again very high: the jury composed by Ray Demski, Jacob Slot and Marco Melloni had to make tough choices during the judgement of the almost 100 photos collected.

As every year, the attendance was very good also at the KOD Village in San Martino town, where it was possible to visit a Photo Exposition with 10 canvases printed by Elle-Erre representing the best pictures from the past edition of the Contest.

The more than successful final outcome of this seventh edition of the Arc’teryx King of Dolomites confirms once again the uniqueness and the spectacularity of this great Contest set in a dolomitic environment of extraordinary charm and beauty, even with poor snow conditions.

As always, special thanks go to the organization committee and to all the volunteers who supported and helped out to made the contest possible, to Arc’teryx – Main Sponsor of the Event, ApT San Martino di Castrozza, Consorzio Impianti San Martino – Passo Rolle, Birra Forst, Elle-Erre, Roxa – Italian Ski Boots, Movement Skis, Slalom Sport, Ranch the Dolomites Bar, Birreria La Stube, Bar Lo Scoiattolo, Hotel Regina, Garnì Alpino, Hotel Belvedere, Ski Residence, Hotel Montanara, ITAS Assicurazioni – Agenzia di Fiera di Primiero, B&B Legno, to the members of the Jury and to all the people who, year after year, continue to trust and support the event!
