So I posted the pic and it went up upside down.
Then I flipped it and it was upside down again !

I think it wants to be upside down & I think I like it that way ! :thumbsup
That is a great pic! It took me a minute to make sure I was seeing it right!

That was my first time falling in a hole since starting in 1977. It was about 8 feet deep and I was lucky. But every time I see it I laugh. Perfect!

Cold Smoke? Not a who but a what? Super dry powder snow that floats in the air. We normally get wet, heavy snow in the PNW due to our proximity to the Ocean and mild temps (we joke it's always 31.5). But it's been 17 degrees up at the Pass for 5 days and snow is like that seen in Colorado and Utah (been there, done that).

Now, today actually ended being the best out of the last 6 (skied 5). Sun came out, connected with a bro and the snow was amazing!

Yet again Griff.... another really cool video
I love that song brother!
I really respect your skiing ability and last-second decision making when you are skiing
Make the wrong decision at the wrong time in which direction to go
Before you know it....bam you’re rapped around a tree
Well I know what cold smoke if now
Keep the videos coming
I enjoy watching them😎

^^^^ thank you brother.

Music makes the vid. I choose the song early in the process based on the vibe of the day.

I’m a Level III certified ski instructor since 1988 and know the area you see me skiing like the back of my hand. That said, I have hit a few trees over the years. Lol.

Finally the vids are my art. Can’t draw, can’t sing, can barely play the guitar.

But capturing footage and then editing it up in a video using transitions is actually art. Fun too. Just wish I had more time to make them better.
