    TR: A few photos

    When BettyDee died, I told myself I was going to break out of my shell and post some TRs. She was just so good at bringing the stoke. Well, three years later, and I still haven't skied or climbed anything worthy of a TR. But whatever. Here are some random photos from the past two seasons. Not much variety cuz I've been in Baltimore for grad school, but I hope you enjoy.

    Edit: somehow in resizing, the photos got a bit blurry. Here's an album with the full res: https://imgur.com/a/ZNjEP

    She can turn left...


    ...but not so much to the right (NB: it's gotten much better since Feb 2016, when this was taken)

    Looking back


    Guess we're a bit late—they're already starting up


    That's okay, there's so much to ski!

    kevino managed to hide his disappointment after my broken binding meant no summit

    My personal favorite photo, taken by kevino, with me out front & jesski bringing up the rear


    And finally, we'll end where it began: Seattle

    Thanks guys. The photos are from the past two seasons—like I said, I haven't gotten out much since I moved to Baltimore. Mainly two trips, one to Cham and one to the Purcells.

    FKNA. Clear skies and smiling skiers. Much like BettyDee's.

    Well, jesski always wanted to go to Cham. BettyDee had invited her for a number of years but she could never afford it. So when we got married, we decided to do 2 weeks of regular honeymoon and then, with my dad's help as our wedding present, we got a larger place for another two weeks and invited all our friends to come stay for free. There were a bunch of people who said they were "definitely coming" when we booked, but kevino was the only one who actually showed up. Edit: actually jesski's brother came and skied for a few days, also.

    Very nice photos and a great tribute to Liz. You and jesski are lucky to have known her.

    I can relate to being able to turn one way and not the other!

    Great pics and great tribute.

    Not a lot of skiing in Baltimore as I understand it.

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

    Not so much, no. I've only ski a handful of days the past several seasons, but I've been lucky with some decent weather.

    Not sure how small the community is up there in NW BC, but the couple in the middle in the second-to-last pic is Trevor and Mary from Shames/Terrace.
