Photo of the Week: Camo Skier

This past week wrapped up another one of the greatest stretches of Northeast powder skiing in recent memory. And even as our precious powder gave way to last weekend’s not-so-powdery storm (although the High Peaks of the Dacks scored 12″+), the skiing was still surprisingly sweet for those who headed for the mountains anyway…(below the ice glaze layer up high, at least). Of course, the skiing is always good in the rain.

As of midday Tuesday, after a heroic effort to keep Spring at bay, it seemed clear that Old Man Winter had finally given in to the inevitable cycling of the seasons. Just as the maple sap will flow and be boiled into syrup in the days ahead, the snow will soften into something equally as sweet.

Here’s an image from early last week in VT, captured while skiing one of the many, many lines that finally become skiable when our snow pack in the middle elevations hits the three to four foot level. With some luck, and before our north-facing mountainsides really start to melt, April will produce some good mountain snowfall and freshen up these lines just few more times.

Ski you out there.
