I love to ski. If I could, I would ski every day. Start off the day by brushing my teeth and making a quick run down the slopes. Yeah, that would rock! Unfortunately, I don't think that's gonna happen...so, when the opportunity came up to go to Telluride for three days of skiing - I jumped at the chance.
Two of the best skiing partners you could ask for - my Dad and my friend Jay
...enjoying the lift ride.
Before you check out the rest of these pics - I should tell you they were all 'captured' with a video camera. Every picture you see is actually a freeze frame from the video I took....so the pictures are not as clear as you might expect from a 'real' camera.
My Dad takes off down the slope, and Jay gets ready to go.
The views from Telluride were some of the best I've ever seen.
Jay and I always make the best of the long lift rides. Wine anyone?
Going over the edge....literally.
Believe it or not, that's my (almost) 70 year old Dad zipping down a BLACK DIAMOND slope!
One thing I'd like to do (if I can find some time over the holidays) is to post some short movies. The picture above doesn't really capture the same excitement as when it's viewed in full motion with sound. So....check back later and I bet I'll have some movies here for ya.
Notice the snow blowing off the mountain ridges.
It was five degrees BELOW zero, windy - but the sun never stopped shining.
Dad struggles to get on his skies after a big lunch.
Go Jay GO!
My Dad notices that it's often much colder in the shade.
Get out of my way!!!
Going up again
My last day on the mountain....after a few too many long lift rides.
Wonder why Jay looks so happy?
C'ya at the bottom!
