Not too Caliente, Not too Picante…

JUST RIGHT! The high elevation east coast snow pack continues to cook to perfection as if it were a delicious curry being prepared in a mountain hut. The recent weather has provided a surprise early taste of spring, and if you aren’t skiing this weekend you are doing yourself a disservice. We’ll get a full trip report later (after the weekend is over–duh!), but suffice it say for now that 800 feet of high alpine powder and then 2200+ feet of absolutely perfect peel-away corn soon followed:

Special thanks to Zach “Rollnthunder”–the notch master. He led the way and I followed. Thanks dude! You ROCK!

      Thanks J. I shoot with the 40D, and mostly the 17-55 AF-S f/2.8. The first shot is a stitch of two shots. Done pretty hastily, but I liked the effect. Thanks for checking in!

    I can’t get over the shear awesomeness of the second picture (though the first is equally good). I don’t think anyone has taken a better picture of me skiing. I owe you a beer for a.) the picture itself b.) taking a chance and touring with me and c.) the killer stoke I know you will bring back after tomorrows tour.

      Like I said on the other update, can’t wait for that full TR. Any idea how much longer they will last (I know, totally weather dependent)? I might try and go back and knock out the one on the right. The one on the left is out of my league on the new sticks for the time being. But seriously man, next time I see you, I owe you a case of Tuckerman’s for going above and beyond.

      Can’t believe it took over a month to convince you to hit the area up. Finally worth it? :P

      And lastly, did you recieve all the files on the FTP?

      Keep on keeping on Greg :D
