Powder Smiles

Smiles all around at the top of Bald Hill yesterday morning.

The posse was in good spirits at the top of Bald Hill yesterday morning as we transitioned for our first run in untracked powder. A perfect day!

Looking Up

Snow-bedecked hardwoods in the high country

The high country was a magical place yesterday as the sun came out and lit up the snow bedecked trees. I was up in the Lion’s Ridge area of the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Center yesterday where the powder was plentiful.

Earning your turns

Two skiers decend at Mad River Glen

Having earned their turns, two skiers head down the mountain past the still Single Chair at Mad River Glen yesterday. It was a busy day on the mountain with quite a few people putting on their climbing skins to make the trek to the summit of General Stark Mountain. And it was well worth the effort!

Fresh Tracks

2.5″ of new snow might not seem like a lot, but beggars can’t be choosers. A nearby hay meadow offered just enough coverage and pitch to make for a fun morning of earning turns!

It was a fine morning to get out on fresh fallen snow. As I made it to the top of Crow Hill (where I’ve never been before), the sun came out and offered up this stunning view of Camel’s Hump and the shoulder of Bald Hill.

My ski buddy, Tom, takes in the view south and west of the Huntington River Valley from atop Bald Hill. A gorgeous morning for a bit of turn-earning.
