Ice crystals

I did recreational ski racing both days over the weekend. I was 4th fastest both days out of 40 on Saturday and 39 on Sunday. Still a little over 1 second behind the fastest guy. So I skied ok but not great. I did watch the guys faster than me today to get a mental image of what I'm doing wrong.

It was beautiful on the mountain today. It was also very cold. In the afternoon I skied through the trees. What looked like light fog in the sunshine from a distance was actually ice crystals floating in the air. It was so cool as it caught the light in different ways. Click on the photo to make it bigger and see the ice crystals better. Notice the ski tracks behind the tree. That makes it a ski photo. :)
