2016 Flashback: Dog Days to Powder Days

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We've had a heck of a string of hot days in the mid-Atlantic.  Humid too.  In the Wash DC area the eight days preceding last Friday had a high temperature of 95 degs F or higher. Hopefully, this heat wave is going to break soon.  But I'm already looking for a mental break, so here's a fotographic flashback of some of my best powder experiences from last winter.  


X-C skiing in 6" of new snow with my wife at Canaan Valley State Park, WV on 1/22/16:


Deepest snow I skied all winter, two feet of new snow from Winter Storm Jonas at Canaan Valley Ski Area on 1/23/16; Patroler Paul:


Snowshoeing with my wife later same day:


The day after Winter Storm Jonas was unbelievable at Timberline Ski Area, WV, 1/24/16.  This is Matt in Cherry Bowl Glades (track heading towards camera is mine ;) )


More of my best buddies at Timberline, Jimmy:






My son Vince at Snowbird on 1/27/16.  He handed me my head on a platter this day.  I found the snow and terrain very challenging.

skiNEwhere again in Olympic Bowl at Highlands:



My friend Tucker over by Deep Temerity at Aspen Highlands, Feb 2016.  Ski like a girl:

Albuquerque Bill at Snowbird 3/31/16:


MarzNC, same day:


Possibly my favorite day of the ski season, Apr 1, 2016; packed powder can be almost as nice as deep powder when the sun comes out like this day in Mineral Basin, Snowbird:


Same day in Great Scott, it was as friendly as Big Emma this day:


Yours truly next day at Alta.  Thanks to Spikedog for the rare photo when my skis are mostly pointed downhill:rolleyes



Think snow!!!

Great pics (as usual) Jim.  Been hot summer in AL also, but actually cooler (80s) the past 10 days.  Looking forward to winter trips out West.

Some really nice shots.  Looks like everyone was having a great time.  Snowbird shot reminded me of how much I'm looking forward to Targhee.  @skiNEwhere had a great video of his trip to Telluride on youtube.

Some sick days there it looks like! I miss skiing Snowbird, but had a great time at Baker these last 3 seasons (well, 2 of them anyway...). This year I'm gonna have to learn to set an edge and really carve again though!
