This year I sepnt the holidays with Lea and her family in Colorado.
We went up to a hut above Copper for a few days, where you ski in (or splitboard in my case). It’s great to be able to access backcountry terrain, it opens up a whole new world outside of ski areas.
I tried skiing for the first time up above the hut. Much less frustrating than a splitboard. Somehow I think this was all part of Lea’s grand plan to convert me to a skier, as I bought a used ski setup before leaving Colorado. Guess I’ll be learning to ski now.
If you would like a print, or full resolution file of any of the images feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The cabin. It was hard to breath up here, especially living at sea level again.
