The Skiing Photos AMalgamated Series (SPAM) is FIS' way of stoking your fire for winter! Every-so-often we will be releasing a photo-amalgam, and offering the work as a FREE download to jazz up your desktop background. GIT SUM!

For week 4 in the SPAM Series we return to the east coast for the series’ first visit to New Hampshire. To start off a great day in what turned out to be a series of “completely average” April ski days, friend of the FamousInternetSkiers, Icelanticskier, made glorious schuss down an untracked Mount Washington gully several days after a storm.

Special thanks to Roger (Icelanticskier) for making a special appearance for my lens! Hope to catch more shots of you schussing soon!!

If you want to see a video from the same spot, check out Allen’s MTW Powder Harvest video from that day (the video also has footage from the “completely average” days that followed). The same line is the second shot in the video.

If you like the shot, feel free to download a higher resolution copy for your desktop below:

If you REALLY like this week’s SPAM, we’ve got mega-wide posters (42″) of this and every SPAM shot so far for sale for $40 shipped. The SPAM 7 posters just came back from the printer and they look really incredible. They are printed at a local printer on demand in Montpelier, VT. That’s why they’re a bit expensive. Click here to get a sense of how much resolution and detail our posters have. Contact us if you’re interested and we’ll set up the order.

Thanks for checking out FIS!

    mmmmmmm, april 14th. will never forget that run. amazing how that spine on skiers left acts to allow fresh wind deposited snow to collect while other areas VERY close by were swept clean down to hard grey matter.

    i can remember our quiet discussion in the lot at the start of the tour. guess our noses knew.

    that was the only time i skied that line this season. tough to go back to it when it’s not……….like that ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    thanx greg, many more to come. adjuct huh? ;)

    Love this pic, definitely my favorite S.P.A.M. so far. Powder shots can get repetitive and boring as they all look the same. This picture is definitely unique. Plus, it’s NH, and I’m extremely biased.

    “adjunct”. me likey :)

    so how bout an adjuct FIS bios page?

    ya, killer run in perfect untracked stable spongecake pow. not knee deep, and not blower, but perfect steepish long gully skiing pow. after a couple of days and a total of 3-4″ of new on the summit with a nw wind, the day before dawned quiet with a bluebird sky. the temps stayed cool enough to preserve the perfect surface, but the sun was strong enough to take the snap out of the dragon. the timing couldn’t have been better really.

    always good snow up there somewhere. always.
