    Close to home.

    Seems like "backyard adventures" are the new cool thing to do.



    So here are a few pictures of half-day outings close to home.



    They do tend to accumulate over the course of a season. I've posted most of these in the snow for the euros thread but whatever









    We skied this.



    It started out fine.


    And quickly turned to shit. Good times!



    Solo afternoon outing with better snow.





    freak



    up and up



    down and down (freak's pic)



    freak skiing



    Black and white kinda day.





    Marius in colour.



    keksie in the shadows.



    Cruising



    This was a little interesting, freak is look for the anchor to our rap.



    We found it.



    line:



    and video of line. we had some issues, as usual.


    we convinced quite a few people that this is in Norway. #fjord #lyngen



    snow sex?



    freak booting.



    Plane flying.



    me skiing, sping in the valley. freak's pic.



    We prefer to take the gondola.



    The quick super close backyard visits get more difficult in spring, always sad when winter proper ends but I suppose there is something to be said about dark thirty alpine starts and dry approaches. Though I can't remember what it was just now.

    More pics and stuff in link in signature.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    It must be hard to leave for exotic locals like Albania when your backyard is so freaken phenomenal.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    thanks! Tyrol, AT, most of the time. And yeah, it can be quite nice. Access is hard to beat.

    Thanks for the bump. Somehow I missed this the first time around. Tremendous work and my life is enriched by it. Beautiful aesthetic to your pictures and sparse writing. Many thanks for your sharing.

    Love the stoke. Might have to head that way this winter.
