Fall: From Low to High

As soon as we reached the top it was time to make the turn and to go back down. From high to low.

From light to dark.
from high to low

From winter–backwards–to fall.
from winter to fall

Looking back on the whole weekend, it’s incredible how much happened. As it was happening I was convinced everything was backwards–the storm, the seasons, the engagements–but looking back on it now, nothing seems backwards at all. I was just viewing fall from low to high.
nothing is backwards at all

Thanks for checking out FIS! See you back out in the mountains for the next storm.

    Great shots as always, Greg. I wish I had had more of a chance to get out this weekend, but after my excursion to the bush (which had to be sadly cut short), I had a blast, and am now proudly able to say that I’ve skied in October.

    I can’t wait for the next snowfall!

    The Ullrangez blend nicely with the foliage!

      I could sense that their master and commander was pleased.

      great TR Greg and photos are just wild. I was tripping on the contrast of the foliage and the wintry lookout I found myself in on Saturday, too, sunny leaf-covered hills in the valley, howling winds and snow underfoot. Bring it.

      HA! yep… it was definitely faked. Never been so bummed on day 1 in my life… oh well. Live and learn. In the end it all worked out. Loved your video/slideshow TR on T4T. I would have loved to make it over there to join you, but alas… it worked out OK.

      We will get together soon though. I have a feeling :D

    Thank you Lionel! What an epic and awesome way to start out the season. As I sit here in my office, I am very jealous of what I see there!

    Nice writing G, the last two pages are especially awesome!

    There must have been krummholz under those rocks, just waiting to make lunch out of a snowboarder.

    Great work! Still kicking myself for going back to bed instead of going skiing. I really need to re-think my priorities, and get some bindings for my rock skis. Next time I’ll be there.

    Well played up high. Given the rain at the base Saturday morning, I never would have thought the summit would have done so well! Cheers to Lionel for the good forecast!

      tell me about it… it was a great great surprise to see that once the snow lifted. incidentally we got the beta when I was taking the scenic snow/foliage shots on Page 3 of the TR. At full crop we were like… woah… that’s rideable!!
