Winter Light

March 4, 2009

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

Recently, while 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 with just a few hours of remaining daylight into the surrounding mountains. 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.

The snowy image image reinforces my belief that powder skiing and ocean wave surfing are deeply intertwined. The billowing snow behind Dylan could easily be the crest of a breaking a wave getting peeled back by an offshore breeze. What a beautiful world this is!
