Photo of the Week: Sliding into Spring

After a couple fantastic weeks of spring skiing across the Northeast, it was nice of Old Man Winter to throw us some fresh snow last week. Although the warmth of days prior (the equivalent of Mother Nature taking a blow torch to our snow pack) had drastically eroded our snow pack, the fresh snow had us feeling like it was mid winter again, if only for a day. On a hunch that at least a few good lines in New York’s Adirondacks were still hanging in there, we headed for the High Peaks region with the aim of skiing a couple of tasty alpine lines, a favorite “slide” (Adirondack speak for landslide path) and a classic down-mountain trail to finish off the day.

This week’s Photo of the Week features Augusta Blackstone paying respects to Old Man Winter, half way through what was probably her last big ski tour of the season in the Dacks. However, more snow is on tap for Tuesday in the mountains…

Ski you out there.
