Mark Dimond skiing at Alta Feb 12, on a beautiful powder day. Mark says, "We had a three days of great skiing with over 50 inches of new snow!" Mark, thanks for rubbing some light, fluffy Alta snow in our Seattle faces!

Pete Kollar: "I live in small town in central Slovakia (45,000 peop's). In winter there is from half to one meter snow. Slovakia has got lots of mountains, and highest is up to 2,500 meters and we call it High Tatras. I used to go to the mountains around 1500 meters high. People don't know there, why we have free heel and don't know what is it telemark. Only a few know what is it. More common and popular is randonee (skialpine). Binding for touring, and for downhill you can lock the heel. Gear. My friend had a outdoor shop and sell Garmont. So he brings telemark. I use Garmont Gara boots, Chili binding and spend lots of money for ski - K2 World Piste (another friend bring me it from Canada)." Right on Pete!

Skier: Mark Takanen. Photographer: Jason Arnold. Location: Big White Ski Area in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. The Day: "Season ended and we were the only ones enjoying the blue skies and sunshine. Tak, Arny and Stew!" Tak has some serious sack! Hope he's got a cup with all those trees around.
