A pre-season out of the ordinary

November has come to an end. Looking back it’s been two intense weeks of skiing since I got home. The weather gods have treated us well and although it’s still fairly rocky on the mountain almost all the regular runs are now skiable.2013-11-24 20.49.56
I’ve missed this view. What is it about mountains that makes you feel so good?
2013-11-24 20.48.12 Janette and Christine came visiting and we had a good week skiing together. It’s a challenge keeping up with two freeskiing world champions but a great way to get in shape for the winter.

I’ve been out shooting with Oskar for a few days too. At this time of the year not much light finds it’s way into the north-facing Titlis area. Here, Olof Larsson is waiting for some sun to catch his line.

Piers dropping in that same run later the same day. The light was sooo pretty.
