Winter Waves

Winter is an endless source of photographic inspiration and natural beauty.

Recently, while waiting in line for first chair at Alta, on a especially deep and fluffy powder day, we were lucky enough to connect with our friend Dylan Crossman – who grew up skiing in Vermont’s Mad River Valley. We enjoyed most of the day at Alta together, and then set off ski touring into the surrounding mountains with just a few hours of remaining daylight.  The sun was playing hide and seek with us all day long, but it emerged for just a few fleeting moments as we dropped in for one of our last runs of the day.

This photo of Dylan (first image) illustrates how powder skiing and ocean wave surfing are deeply intertwined.  It’s incredibly to us how the billowing snow behind Dylan resembles the plumes of ocean spray off the back of a breaking wave in an offshore breeze (second image).

What a beautiful world this is…

    Really awesome pics. I enjoy winter season skiing specially the powder ski . It feels great to enjoy skiing in winter vacations. Currently I am trying to learn water skiing.
