ode to the powderkeg

the annual backcountry black diamond ski race was held on saturday. hooray, dan's favorite athletic event of the year. the powder was perfect thanks to a timely storm, so these boys had plenty to play in. i was there to snap photos, chat with the other cute wake up at the crack of dawn supportive wives at the finish line, cheer the boys on, and enjoy the post fun and celebratory burgers & shakes. couldn't be prouder.

jeremy slides victoriously into the finish line.

dan at the finish line, fittingly covered in powder.

dan. the puffy coat. the pack.

friends, jeremy and dustin enjoy their post powderkeg burgers.

for more expert advice, telemark tips and photos, visit dustin's blog. he's serious about the slopes. it was fun to be up in the beautiful mountains and watch these telemark enthusiasts come skiing into the finish line. they all rocked the race and put on a very adventurous display of being backcountry die-hards. way to go. later that night, in honor of the mountain men, elizabeth made pioneer woman's amazing apple dumplings which feature dan's all time favorite beverage, mountain dew! you must try them. they are actually quite delisch.
