    Nothing too out of the ordinary,except the fireplace that is. It was like no other, beautiful stone surrounded the modern gas fireplace, with floor to ceiling glass windows to the left. Exposing a beautiful view of the mountains. The living room was a warm, cozy room that always smelled like cinnamon and spice. We lived within walking distance to the mountain that only enabled our addiction. Our town wasn’t like other ski towns, normally the off season turns into ghost season, we stayed populated all year round. If you were to ask my parents which place held the best memories, I think it’s safe to say we would agree on Switzerland. The views were rigid and mysterious. Some of the most breathtaking moments have been standing at the peak of Zermatt resort, embracing 360 degrees of pure beauty. Switzerland was also the first family trip we all took together that didn’t result in a trip to ski patrol or the emergency room. That was rare for us, as you could imagine from the importance the sport has in our family. Falls were common, just as common as broken…

    Western Cordillera After nearly 720 km of walking, I’ve arrived at one of the highest points in the Western Cordillera. My legs and back are sore from climbing the steep and twisting mountains, while my entire body is frozen from the ice and snow. But the sight I see now is definitely worth it. Everywhere, all of it, is beautiful. The mountains I see are the very jewels of nature, hardly affected by the booming forces of erosion. These are colossal proofs of the Western’s Cordillera’s status as…

    water over and over again as I am trying to learn how to water ski for the first time. I have recently had the privilege to be able to experience both water skiing and snow skiing. I was able to learn how to water ski for the first time this last summer; I went snow skiing for the first time this winter. Even though they have similar names, they are each unique and different from each other. There was definitely a learning curve for both of these activities as I started as a beginner. However, I…

    Joan Mitchell’s Chamonix 1962 painting appears to be a mess at first glance; paint violently pushed across canvas, no focal point and seemingly just no point to this piece. However, by giving a name to this abstract mess, we are able to begin to use our imagination to begin to see shapes take form to see that Mitchell has made an abstraction of a French mountain and it is our job as a viewer to use our minds to make a story of her canvas. Mitchell’s 200 by 217.2cm canvas overtakes your vision…

    Our cousins and us would have so much fun all day skiing on the mountain. I’ve memorized the whole mountain and all of the names of the runs. I don’t know what it is that I love about skiing, but I just love how much fun it is and the speed I can reach! Everything about skiing just makes me love it- the chairlifts, the gondolas, the runs, and the trees. It’s so pretty in the mountains, which is why I always carry my camera on my back while skiing in case I just NEED to capture a photo of the…

    One of Austria's hidden skiing gems Serfaus is set on a sunny plateau above the Tyrolean Inn Valley along with two sister villages: Fiss and Ladis. With the smell of dung, a pretty church, and wooden chalets the village is typically Tyrolean. Serfaus holds the distinction of being the only resort in Europe with an underground railway – a two-carriage train with four stops meant to reduce traffic and transport tired youngsters with several skis and poles. Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is one of the top ski…

    After being at school for what seemed like forever, I put on my boots and headed to the ski lift as I looked at the snow glow in the cold February sun. As I waited in line, John was grabbing ice balls the size of my hand, then throwing them at my back. Without anything to throw back him, I felt as helpless as an amputee in a war-zone. Even though Jack was next to me checking my ticket, he did not seem to care that someone was throwing ice balls at me. He didn’t even care to look at my lift…
