DEEP DE­CEM­BER DAYS

SKI - - FOCUS -

Non­stop early-sea­son snow makes for good days, not to men­tion long ones. “It was snow­ing pretty much the en­tire time we were there, amaz­ing early De­cem­ber cold smoke,” says pho­tog­ra­pher Ryan Creary of his time at Pow­der Creek Lodge in B.C.’s Koote­nays. Creary and skier Adam McCraw, shown peel­ing off his skins af­ter a su­per-deep out­ing, spent the day with the lodge own­ers right be­fore the start of the com­mer­cial sea­son. “The con­di­tions were in­cred­i­ble,” says Creary. “It was re­ally hard to go back early at the end of such an amaz­ing day.” Judg­ing by the num­ber of stars in the sky, we’re guess­ing this this was one of those days.
