April...it was a lot of fun.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

April was a blast.  The weather kept us off of our bigger goals, but we still had a blast exploring old areas in new ways.

 

 

Since I won't be doing much more skiing in Colorado this year, I thought I'd give a short photo tribute to my CO skiing this season.  A few of the pics are below, more can be seen here.

I recently got these pics of my friend and I feel that I would be remiss if I didn't add the "best faceshot" of the year to my photo tribute. The following pictures, again courtesy of Patrick Orton, are of a close friend of mine. He was lucky/unlucky enough to earn the claim of Best Faceshot of the Year. I challenge anyone to top it...

A guy once dry-docked on Eagle's Nest, a very bony line. He double-ejected and was headed for a face plant on basalt scree and slab, so he did the only thing he could: he started running. It was clearly a: feet, don't fail me now!!eek.gifaaaack!

 

That is a great shot; though not often photographed as well, the double eject is a common enough occurrence, especially dropping in, and often leads to a perfect front flip.

Thanks.  Great skiing.  Was the scenic cornice jump wipeout in the backcountry?  Which resort is in the background?

Play safe!

Way to get after it, Joel.  Looks like a lot of fun.
