Show me your ski shots

I love skiing, shooting photos of skiing, and looking at others' ski photos. Let's see your ski shots! Here are a few from the past couple of days to get us started.
These are all taken with my go-to ski lens the DA 18-135 WR on a K-5.

Here's my 9 year old son at Monarch Mountain on saturday



Here's my friends on a backcountry ski yesterday.









and one of me taken by one of my friends

As I've never been skiing and hardly ever seen snow in my 65 years, my ski shots will be of my wife and I Spending the Kid's Inheritance.

Thanks. What a day that was. But today was great too with another 12" and then a new storm moved in for the afternoon!

That's how last season was for us. Crested Butte keeps getting missed too and they aren't that far apart.
Monarch seemed to be in the cross hairs of this particular storm and got the highest totals in the state. Lucky us! Made the lines long too.

I haven't had time to process most of this year's Backcountry Picnic shots, but I couldn't resist this face plant!
