Photo(s) of the Week: Summer Ski Check

Especially during these toasty warm days of mid-summer, it’s refreshing to pull out the skis now and then, make sure the red squirrels aren’t chewing the bindings to pieces, and even slide around on them a little bit – be it on a rain soaked hillside, around the yard, or better yet, on the fast sliding floor of a red pine forest. Seventeen-month old Maiana Snow took the lead this week with her own (borrowed) pair of snow-white boards. A pair of hand-me-down pink crocs made for the perfect summer boot setup (Thanks John and Hannah!, and sorry Scarpa), and although pole-less, she came through with some smooth kick and glide action across the yard.

With the first ski-movie trailers making headlines and the first ski magazines of the season about to drop, it won’t be long now before we’re back on the snow again. In the meanwhile, it’s a fine time to swim in all the clean water you can find, eat fresh greens from the garden, go wandering up a stream bed and sleep out under the stars.
