Slopestyle Ski Photo Essay

Happy Easter!

Red Mountain 2016

We came across this sweet little rabbit on our recent ski trip to Red Mountain in Rossland, B.C. After enjoying some lovely powder turns we made our way down the mountain through the trees and there it was, frozen like a statue as we marvelled at her camouflage.

We haven't had a photo essay for a while, so I thought I'd share some more photos taken with my new iphone 6 (which is WAY too big and I'm so bummed that Apple issued a smaller phone with the same photo capabilities just a week after I got this one - the story of my tech life!).

No lift lines make for a sweet ski vacation!

This one is actually taken by B of our group after a little hike up for a back country run through lovely, untracked powder fields. I'm in the red jacket third from the right.

It was a pleasure to bring D's friend along for the week - they had a ball!

With three mountain, Red has so much terrain it was like we had the entire resort to ourselves!

An excellent reminder with all of the glade skiing there is on Red!

So awesome! I'm often in that area for work but I haven't been skiing yet. I don't know if I still know how! B looks like he's still got it. :)

Beautiful photos! The idea of having a place like that "to yourself"...how exhilarating!

Oh that looks so dreamy! I'm not a skier but I certainly appreciate the ski lifestyle (après ski, peut-être?) Meanwhile, we are still swimming in an ocean that is +25 degrees in Autumn, feeling very blessed.

Despite it's oversized status your phone takes excellent photos! Although I suspect it has more to do with the operator than the actual phone camera ;0)
I love your photo essays. This one almost makes me want to ski! haha.

Wow, that looks like a whole lot of fun!! Thanks for sharing the photos with us. The snow looks soft and powdery, just right for a great day of skiing :-)
