Photo of the Week: Halloween Turns

After skiing like a super hero who we began to call “Ski-Ra”, a smiling Ski-Ra turned to us and declared, “I think I’m always going to ski with a cape. It’s so fun!”

Meanwhile, Matt Davis (below), our maple-sugaring, yurt-living, science teaching friend, dressed up like a regular skier, not wanting anything to interfere with his first test run on the extra pair of Marquette skis which we had brought along for him. After taking a look up the mountain, which had melted back a bit over the last few days, he was glad to leave his skinny and delicate rock skis – with their vulnerable edges and ptex bases – behind. An hour later, and a few turns into his run, Matt seemed sold on the go-anywhere, ski-anything nature of the Marquettes – which may just be the ultimate thin-cover quiver ski.

It was a glorious day to be out in the sun for a couple of hours, and it reminded us of the last time we all skied together last spring, when we carved fresh tracks in sun-ripened corn before tending to some other chores for the afternoon. We hope everyone had a fun Halloween.(Click on the photos below to enlarge to full size)
