Extreme Skiing | Sports Photographer

We spent 2 weeks visiting my parents in Breckenridge, Colorado last month.   The weather was way too nice!  :(  Too much sun and warmth and spring skiing.  I was hoping for some awesome powder days but all I got was one day of maybe 5 inches.  Of course it snowed several feet the day after we left.  Had a great time anytime and it was radtastic getting to ski with my family and friends in Breck.  I even got to see a couple of my former ski coaches, which was really cool.

We took a couple of runs on lower Peak 8 first.  We were on the first chair up, so the upper bowls weren't open yet and I thought it was the perfect time to play around with the fisheye.  This is my sis, BIL and my dad.

I took pictures on the lift of course :)Peak 8, Breckenridge

After a ride up the Imperial lift and a 15 minute hike, we were ready for some serious fun!  Breck putting in this lift is awesome.  Back in the day, this was an hour long hike.Breckenridge, Colorado

I thought this would show how steep the run is - they were holding the back of my jacket as I took this shot so I wouldn't fall forward - but you can't really tell.  I still dig the shot though.Skiing Breckenridge

And skiing Lake Chutes - radtastic!
