Greetings from the Canadian Rockies

in Family, General

Our first day of skiing was GREAT!

We are all exhausted.

I bought a new camera to take skiing. Something small and light that I can fit in my pocket. My D70 is just too darn heavy (and precious) to take skiing. The new camera is about the size of a deck of cards, takes OK pictures and it does video as well.

This is Sam skiing the upper canyon. It’s an easy black diamond run. It was overcast and snowing (but not cold -2c/29f), perfect for skiing, because of the lighting you can see how really steep and bumpy this run is.

I’ll catch up with you tomorrow.

    Cool video–made me feel like I was skiing too. How did you manage to get passed your son and then turn around and keep filming?
