For the superstitious skier, it’s usually a bad idea to talk about a snow storm before it arrives.
But this ski season so far has been lacking in terms of snow, so whatever steps we’ve taken to keep from jinxing the snowfall hasn’t been effective, and there’s a storm on the way.
So I’m going to take the opposite approach and share some powder pics from earlier in the season in hopes that it brings the snow. Chris and I were in Canada in December at CMH Valemount and shot photos for Kastle’s new ski, the BMX 128, and I think we came home with a few good ones.

Viktoria Rebensburg took the win here for Germany. Interesting to me was the fact that she was on Nordica skis, a brand rarely seen, on the World Cup podium. Click any photo to enlarge.
The fastest women skiers in the world descended on Aspen this past weekend for the 2011 Women’s World Cup Winternational and the two days of racing were awesome to see. Actually, the whole weekend was a blast, starting with top-to-bottom skiing for Aspen’s opening day on Thanksgiving and going all the way through Sunday afternoon’s final slalom run. Here are a some shots I got from Saturday’s Giant Slalom race, where American Julia Mancuso finished 3rd: read more>>>
