April 2016 Image of the Month Contest  

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

We will still be running the image of the month contests and users will get the coveted (sarcasm) badge that comes with being our featured photographer. Unfortunately I don't believe I will be able to scrounge up any physical prizes during the warmer months, but still please keep contributing the images you take. Especially with the season wrapping up in parts of the world feel free to post pictures biking, hiking, from your vacation to wherever, etc. This contest is for great photographs, not just skiing related. 

 

Rules:

 

  1. The image must be your own and take during the month of April 2016. 
  2. Please submit one image per post; you can submit up to three images/posts per month. 
  3. Please put a brief description of the image (where, what, when, or any other interesting details). 
  4. Voters can vote for as many images as they like. 

 

Also not a rule, but an explanation. Please vote for the images you like! At the bottom of the post there is a little thumbs up button, please click it!

Not sure what I'm going to do for photos with the ski area closing Sunday and mud season in full swing.

Edit: This wasn't the picture I meant to post! Will post the right one next.

I noticed this plane on the exact same heading as I, riding up the lift, and thought it made for a nice picture. Captioning it is the real challenge...

 

The new Summit Express at Solitude really flies!

or

First tracks!

or

Jet skiing redefined

or something... the perfect pun is out there somewhere, I'm sure!

 

edit: NeedToSki suggests "I'm still skiing, while you're heading home"

LOL, true, but I didn't want to rub it in!

Slowly transitioning to Summer.....

 

We skied on Saturday and did a hike/scramble in the front ranges on Sunday. Summer isn't such a bad season. ;)

Another spring weekend, but we actually got a bit of snow/rain this time. Skied on Saturday, and went for a scramble and hike on Sunday.
This is from Mount Lawrence Grassi, one of the peaks above Canmore, Alberta.

I woke up from a dream this morning that I was in the mountains and it was snowing. I was rushing to get my camera setup and all excited to have something to post in this thread...needless to say I haven't figured a way to get the images from the camera there to the thread here yet....

post #18 of 24
I've had three ski dreams since they closed the lifts. None during the season, though...

Last day at Mt. Baker for me.  It was cloudy and began to rain later.  The mountains are right along the U.S./Canada border, some are in each country.

Looks like a 4 way tie for first place right now! Some other folks need to get in here and vote quickly and decide this one!

I know I'm a little late to the contest again, but thought I'd add picture I took of skier entering Extra Chute in the Palisades at Squaw on April 29. More of the sequence I took is at http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12141 but I am sharing this one as it includes the Lake.

It was my first time hiking to the top of Squaw Peak and skiing a chute in the Palisades in about 40 years.
