More skiing...

It's been a lot of fun skiing lately - we got a great powder dump that we've been milking for a few weeks and some cool photos and awesome skiing have come out of it. Right now there's a blizzard warning so Santa is delivering the goods to us skiers. Here's a shot of me skiing "the nose" of the PMS bowl on Magnum. I've been really getting into shots that show how big the terrain is.

Nothing really steep or particulary impressive, just good times building skiing strength and being "out in it"

Skiing Season is on!

My high season is in full gear after a few days of sporadic skiing in the past few weeks and two days of surprisingly good skiing in Turnagain Pass this weekend. Scott Fennel took this nice shot of me dropping off CFR into the bowl below. When I got done with this part of the run I was completely stoked - after 34 years of skiing the exhiliration of good snow, a nice slope, and big powerful turns still turns me on like nothing else.
