    Postholed and got stuck while hiking for fresh turns in extreme terrain above the Molly Hogan lift on retro day at ABasin.

    Taking a selfie from the top of Stowe on opening day of the 2015-2016 season. If I had known what an awful season it was going to be, I probably wouldn't be smiling.

    Mine, here:

    Courtesy of @Philpug . He is great at capturing the monent in media. The birth of the avatar can be witnessed here.

    On the last weekend of Mt Rose this season, we spent a fun day with Phil and @Tricia . At some point I see Phil speed up ahead like there was no slush in there and stop. I later realized he was taking pics. This is the better one of three pictures that he took of me (the worst had decent edge angle but a lot of banking ;) ).

    Anyways, I love my avatar because it reminds me of a lovely day in an amazing season. End of May, how cool is that ?

    Mine's just a typical dreamy day here at Whitefish. I'm sure it'll get changed on occasion.

    Mine is just a fone foto of my television, taken while packing for a ski trip. The Bumble was always a favorite character and I just happened to catch him cross-eyed and toothless.

    This was at Whistler/Blackcomb, Thanksgiving weekend, November 27th, 2016 at 2:30pm. The photo was taken with by Lady Salina or her brother (forgot name, sorry) near Jersey Cream. Pretty amazeballs early season conditions, though those were soft moguls rather than untracked.

    Just your standard everyday selfie of my son and me when we visited Jackson Hole in 2016. Impossibly blue skies, fresh powder everywhere, nary a lift line to be found...it was just one of those days.

    Skiing at Stratton in Vermont on Monday, Feb 13, 2017. It started snowing on Sunday and didn't stop until Monday afternoon. The total amount was over 20 inches. I blew off my Monday schedule.

    Pata-Gucci jacket modeling for climbing photographer Jeremiah Watt, Feb. 2011, Figure 8 Hill, lower Wolverine Cirque in Utah. I'm actually P-turning on tele gear, drilled the rocks and went full ragdoll after he snapped this.

    Mine is explained in a remarkably similar way to @Chris Walker : Me and my boy on a good day. He and I had left his mother and sister behind for much of the day. He had skied (quite well) his first black diamond*. He insisted on riding the bus back to the car with me and we giggled and laughed the whole way back. The selfie was his idea.

    *Something I had withheld for, literally, years, until he was ready. Something I still don't permit unless conditions are right. He is 6 in this photo. Will be 8 by first snow this winter.

    In my book, you get extra credit for the ragdoll!
