’13-14 Winter in Photos

I’m not really good enough at skiing to warrant blogging about it, but sometimes I ski with people who are, so here goes.

November was ok. It snowed, we did some skiing, we did some skiing at night. Mad River was – as usual – the best game in town, since it wasn't open yet.

December sucked. It was too cold and icy to do anything at all. Seriously, I wished I had crampons to walk to the grocery store from my car in the parking lot.

January had its requisite day or two of kayaking, followed shortly by what was rapidly becoming the main theme of this winter: bitter cold.

February yielded welcome respite from the grips of the now infamous Polar Vortex. I did some meadow skipping in Aspen with Morgan Boyles while en route to the Grand Canyon.

Jackie also enjoyed Aspen, though wished she had brought her snorkle.

March was awesome. I even found ski buddies who aren't Jackie! (Skier: Justin Beckwith)

Not to say she didn't come. She quite enjoyed March as well. (Skier: Tom Callahan)

The view from the top of one of the zones I found, 20 minutes from home. Not bad! This one won me some free schwag from Ski VT – anyone need two Killington tickets for next year?
