(It was a bit of a shock the first time I tried a black diamond run at Lutsen Resort a couple of years ago. I could do it, but it wasn't pretty. It probably won't be any prettier this year, although I learned from my visit to Big Sky that a lesson on the first day is helpful. So I will take a lesson first thing while my husband goes off and plays on the big slopes.)
My desire for today's picture was to get my husband's skiis as they came in for a quick stop. Since it was the end of our ski day, and the lines were getting really long, I only had once chance. I didn't get a perfect shot, but still not bad for a first try.
And of course one of my husband, in fierce ski mode.
