DEEP DECEMBER DAYS
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.
