I've been missing skiing alot lately, between looking at web sites, getting e-mails from mates in Europe, reading old issues of Couloir and hearing about Duncan planing his trip to Alaska I was itching to get out and ski. It was a lot of hard work, but I knew after such a big winter and even some fresh snow over night here in the Craigieburn Range, that if I looked in the right places I would be able to hunt out a little snow to play on. ENJOY!
"The skier who forsakes the lifts to climb under his own power to a mountain summit is a very different person from the downhill only piste basher and is often regarded by the latter as something of a curiosity.
But he was the creator of the sport; and possibly with him lies the future"
-Robin Fedden, The book of Europen Skiing, 1966
