    I think if you are going to do this (especially if the pics are of great snow/terrain vitsas) you need to at least tell us where/what the pic is of :D

    So come on @Kletterer and @almontyrat - where are those two pics of? Looks like some great snow/terrain :thumbs:

    First decent day of ski touring 3 years after having a child. Sad thing is there hasn't been many solid days since. Not the best snow but nice to get out there and knock it off on your own sometimes (said the bishop to himself). And to get a decent photo i fell in the creek trying to cross.

    Or fell over.

    Or just had a sugar topped Danish for ski snack, in fact I'm sure that is the answer.

    I'll go with that...

    It was one of 2 blue bird days this one I got first tracks out of G7. We had amazing snow in Canada but nothing like this. Niseko may cop some flack about being like Bali but I think just like Bali surf spots when it's on it's amazing.
