Terrifying ride up the Crystal Chair followed by even more terrifying trip down the Blueline run. Sleet sticking to the goggles, so between that and the snow and the mist, couldn't see the run at all. Thanks to my brother, Robert, we made it down, without falling too many times, getting stuck in the snow, or hitting a tree.

“Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter's day, how beautiful the shadows are! Alas! it is the nature of their kind to be so. The loveliest things in life, Tom, are but shadows; and they come and go, and change and fade away, as rapidly as these!” - Charles Dickens

My skiing color - Opi's Ski Teal We Drop - I've been waiting for months to wear this color. ;-) Nothing feels better after a day of skiing than a soak in the hot tub on the balcony, looking out onto the snow laden trees and watching the sun set (it came out at the end of the day). Paradise...

Beginning the day with beautiful sun and blue skies. A liitle low cloud obscured other mountains in the distance, but it's absolutely gorgeous out here! Sun Peaks ski resort near Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

Mountains of sparkly, fluffy snow... every once in a while the trees will lose some of their load, resulting in the white dots you see in this pic. Sun Peaks ski resort near Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.

No sun today - this was at the top of the Burfield chair on Mt. Tod. It was like being in a cloud... it was very eerie not to be able to see the end of the chairlift or even to see the next chairlift tower.

Overheard on the lift: Kid 1 I did the rainbow, but I wish it had a cooler name. Wouldn't it sound more tough if it was called the Deadly Arch? Kid 2 But it's not tough.

There were some decorated trees on the Showboat run (right under the chairlift) on Mt. Morrisey. They were so adorable, I had to stop to take a few shots.

These things are much faster than you think they're going to be when you land on it sideways. Thankfully it's not that high to fall off of.

The slight lapse in technique is due to a sudden change from steep to flat, and me not quite sorting the shutter lag on the P&S.
