Ski Cam!!

Well, we finally won the Snowstorm Sweepstakes, with a surprise five inches of snow that arrived in the middle of the night. We woke up to fresh powder, after having gone to sleep thinking that we’d be skiing week-old crud.

The batteries on my camera wore out unexpectedly early on in the day, but not before I was able to make this video – poles in one hand, camera in the other – as I made fresh tracks on a run called Timberline:

Unfortunately, the sound on the video makes the snow sound kind of crunchy when, in fact, new powder actually “squeaks” underneath your skis.

I wish the video could better capture what it feels like to ski on fresh powder or the steepness of the run. Ah well. There’s always Warren Miller videos.
