Dreamtime - 5 photos for wintersick snow riders

  
  
  

It must be summertime.  I dreamt of skiing last night, which for some reason doesn't happen in the winter. A couple of days ago my daughter asked me when we could go skiing again. My wife came into my office this morning while I was looking through winter photos from Revelstoke. She stopped and stared.  Then said wistfully, “I’m already sick of summer.”

It's clear that I'm not the only one beginning to dream about frosty mornings, cold face shots, blinding white alpine vistas, and the exhilarating rush of downhill speed in deep snow. 

So I went through my collection and put together these 5 dream-like ski photos to help us all through the longest days of the year. 

Just a cool December lift ride, like here at the Sunshine ski resort near Banff, at minus 30C sounds refreshing right now:

But full-body powder immersion like this snowboarder at CMH Galena sounds even better:

Here’s the shot that sent my wife into fits of wintersickness, a lone ski track in the Revelstoke high country:

Dreamtime in the Bugaboos - where heliskiing began:

And finally, a dreamscape at CMH Monashees, one of several CMH areas known worldwide for the most exciting tree skiing on the planet:

If these photos are too painful to look at right now, my apologies. If these photos get you inspired for a bike ride to keep the legs in shape, or to plan a ski trip, you’re welcome.
