Earth Day, Ski Day.

Not so often that you can ski on new snow on Earth Day, April 22. But it happens. Up to a foot on Mount Mansfield, VT, last week, much of it deposited during howling winds and horizontal precipitation. The lifts are closed for the year, so it’s a matter of climbing up to ski down. Almost everyone on skis used alpine touring equipment and climbing skins. Thanks to Eric Smeltzer and everyone else for modeling in the storm.
