ice climbing mountains multiple exposure

When it’s too cold and your camera stops advancing the film. I ended up with this accidental multi-exposure — consider it an entire ice climbing trip in one image! Cold choked the battery, I think, because photos I shot on the same film & camera in sunny Phoenix, later on the same trip, turned out fine.

Perhaps it’s time to switch to digital?

Sun Down Bowl

The Sun Down Bowl, Sun Up Bowl and China Bowl are now open on the back side of Vail Mountain.

The early-season openings mean that three of Vail’s seven Legendary Back Bowls are now open.

Game Creek Bowl is open; Blue Sky Basin is also open as of 12/4/2014. Lots of terrain opening up very early; this 2014 ski season is looking good!

Photo taken on the ridge between Game Creek Bowl and Sun Down Bowl. Snow was a little icy today (first day of December, 12/1/2014) due to sunny conditions and a lack of new snow. More snow is expected in Vail on Wednesday (update: did not materialize), although as my father always says: you can’t predict the weather.
