You probably know by now that I'm a ski junky. The last couple of weeks I've been training so I can do some photography on the slopes. I changed skis to all terrain rockers to give me a little more stability with the camera. The first week I spent getting used to my new skis. The second week I've been getting used to skiing with a pack loaded with camera gear. It's amazing how much a 50 lb. pack changes your center of gravity. Tuesday I hit my first black diamond run with a loaded pack. Talk about feeling like a rookie. Today I told my friend and mountain guide (I haven't skied the Canyons since it was called Park West) that I didn't want to do any black diamonds as I wanted to build my confidence riding with a loaded pack. To his credit he didn't take me to any black diamonds.
I should have known when there were light cover caution signs when you got on the lift that I was in for it.
