After our original plan backfired due to a snow covered access road, my crew and I ended up at Ebbett’s Pass late Wednesday night for some full moon skiing. Like the snow we found on the Freel/Job’s Sister access road conditions were, um, firmer than we expected. Still, when you’re hiking and skiing under a full moon, in June no less, it’s pretty fun regardless of the snow conditions.
The following are 7 shots my buddy Court took during our full moon escapade. He took the one up top as well, which shows me, Mike, and Chris on our biggest descent of the evening skiing off the long ridge that terminates at Tryon Peak.
In this shot it almost looks like daytime.
This shot looks like ski turns but is really just Mike and Chris hiking up the bare ridge en route to our primary objective.
A nice moon shot with Mike, Chris, and myself at the bottom,
and one without the moon in the frame.
Here’s two shots of Chris and I as we rode past Court,
and a parting shot of the full moon as some clouds rolled in right as we were bailing.
