Ahh, March and April, my favorite time of year. Generally stable enough to ski most of the steeper alpine lines, yet the snow is still powder on the north faces. It just doesn’t get any better in Colorado.
March 18, Anthracites.
The photo above shows a problem I had been having with my trusty Canon a640. More and more often, I would get lines in the photos, especially in bright and sunny conditions. So, when a good deal on a used Canon G9 came around, I jumped on it. All of the following photos were taken with it, and so far I’ve been very happy with it.
March 31, Playground
April 1, Near the S-Tube
A quick video of that run. I love it when the sun sets up just right so the skier’s shadow shows up:
April 2, Mt. Owen
April 4, Wang Chung
The following day, April 5, we did a big tour and skied 3 new routes (to us). More on that later. Happy Spring!
