Nothing spectacular like QOTS but these are two of my favorites from this year.

The family that skis together...My brother and I flanking my parents (ages 79 and 75)

Still skiing at 79 and 75... My heartiest congratulations to them and you too. Parents are the joy of our lives at a point that we grow up enough to realize it. Then we see ourselves through them. Wish you many more years of wonderful experiences with them. Mine are gone as of recently, so the best I can say to you is - enjoy them.

That's a good one.... Looks like Beaver Mountain up in Logan but I could be wrong. Beautiful area - Logan Canyon and the whole Bear Lake area are relatively little known and very nice!

It's funny how things come around. My Dad has Parkinson's but he is still out there living it and never complains. Now I am shepherding them down the Greens and Blues \:\)

Queen: Did I mention that I was green with envy when I saw that pic of you in that deep pow? It must be nice to have that "in your back yard" \:\) Great topic!

This is a great thread idea, hope it continues to collect posts/pictures. Love that first shot of the Queen in her Powder Room!

Beautiful landscape shots are great, but the real keepers usually involve humans. Mr and Mrs JimK at Le Massif, Quebec, Mar '08: http://www.snowjournal.com/images/gallery_snowjournal/4808bcfc6eb76.jpg

Wow, I'm frequently impressed with the DCSki posts, but now you all write French too? Peut-etre que cela ne devrait pas m'etonner...

Anyway, I may be missing something really obvious, but could someone explain how to embed photographs in a DCSki thread? I was going to post pictures from our trip to the Alps in March, but couldn't figure it out quickly, and kind of forgot about doing so.

Il est très facile! Embed the url to the image in [img] tags like this:

 Code:
[img]http://hunter.pairsite.com/craig/AA_0091.jpg[/img]


And here is the result:



Of course, to do this, you need to have the images hosted somewhere.

219...thanks for the code, I was wondering how to do it myself. At any rate here is a pic of my daughter on her (and our) first trip out west standing at the top of Lady Morgan at Deer Valley.

We must have done something right, because now my wife (who does not ski) is insisting we return next year. C'est la vie!



I like this shot of my instructor at Park City Mountain

All good. I'll put up something different. This is the monument to the 10th mountain division found in Breckenridge, and there are several around the country. My dad was in company K of the 10th and saw significant action in the Italian mountains. I remember how surprised I was as a teenager when I saw him leading me down the slopes - I didn't know he could ski like that!


Which leads me to my last ski picture of 2008. That's my 13 year taking the lead and pointing the way down Sugarloaf. Two generations later the lead is passing again.

Dave, I read a couple books about the 10th last year, and there are some amazing stories about those guys -- both during the war and years later in the ski industry. Now that I am more aware of the 10th, I see familiar names all throughout the ski industry. I have the utmost respect for those guys.

Here's to your dad (of course I'm drinking coffee right now, but that's close -- I can still raise a mug to salute a vet).

BTW, if anyone is interested, I did a report on one of those books here:

It's a good read for the off-season. I think I am going to pick up another couple 10th-mtn books this summer.

Thanks Craig. I'll check that out. I also have the official Army history volume written just after the war with forward by the commander and full rosters, along with some funny troop songs like this one.

And then I climb up to Panorama, and point my skis down from the top.
Yee Goodness! but how I get moving. I tink that I never vould stop.
I vunder my heart is still beating as off of a cornice I schuss.
I bail out in Edith Creek Basin and landed kerplunk on my puss.

I haven't posted in about 8 weeks. I got hurt again in mid February and it sort of bummed me out on skiing for the last part of the season. Doing better now, but motivation to ski is sort of gone. I have been riding my bike almost every day for the past 3 weeks.

Sorry to hear about that; injuries during the season can be a real bummer. It's actually a relief to get to the post season in some ways -- I can stop worrying about weather and health so much! I even gambled with my knees tonight and ran a few miles...

I know -exactly- how that feels.

Well, great to hear from Utah... I agree, the older we get the more recovery time we need. My gym time is getting longer and longer...

what injury did you have tromano? I can talk for hours on rehabbing low back pain and herniated disc issues I can tell you a good stretching program and massage therapy is WAY under-rated! \:\)

Crunchy,

I sprained my left ankle skiing in Mid December and then sprained my right ankle learning to snowboard in Mid February.
