spring (barely) skiing: a photo montage!

It’s been said that skiing is the art of catching cold and going broke while heading nowhere at great personal risk. And then there’s skiing / hiking / wandering about in the woods at a undeveloped semi-slope near you.

Here are some photos from my recent jaunt into a nearby state forest. The snow was corn at best, melted mud at worst. But completely enjoyable all the same.

It’s not knee-deep pow in the Rockies, but it’s easy, local and cheap, and so, in some ways, even more satisfying than big-mountain, big-lift line, big-expense skiing.

see the corn, ski the corn ...

... before it turns into the stream
