    the week before xmas saw our area get hit w/ 3 good-sized snowstorms, so the boys and i took advantage and went sledding. here are some action shots. i usually shoot RAW but decided on JPG for better capacity in burst mode.

    #1 Otis, eating some snow



    #2 Faceplant! (Otis took a ~15 minute injury timeout after this one....the snowpack was hard and crusty from the rain we got the night before)



    #3 Superman!



    #4 my oldest, getting some good hangtime


    and a few shots from the day before, when the snow was softer and the sky overcast:

    #5 hitting the jump



    #6 sliding down the hill of doom (this was a large pile of snow made from a bucketloader, when clearing the parking area)


    #7 the turtle



    #8 crashing on mount doom.

    always a good time. be careful with the landings on those little booters, make sure theres some soft stuff to. Cracked 4 vertibra's that way a few yrs back

    Those are some great pictures. The second one down could be used as an "OWNED" picture. Classic scorpion style landing there, I give him a 7. If his feet touched his ears Id give him a 10.
