So its snowing for the first time outside right now. Even sticking. Might be time to get the ski gear out and dusted off. A few images to note this week. In the new issue of Backcountry I have what I think might be my first non-ski image published in a ski magazine and a small pic of Kubas shot in the woods around Rutland. Also noteworthy is the inside backcover. It's an ad for Bentgate Skishop out of Golden, Colorado. In the ad, fantastic tele-skier and future Alta Mayor, Mike Burton is dropping the knee up on Patsy Marley.
