Power of Powder Skiing at Amped SnowSports
The power of powder for skiing, Ironic really considering that everything we know is silent, succulent, fluffy and floaty. Yet we are drawn to this powder. Prepared to indulge in this powder, and talk a big game about the bottomless depths of this powder we can handle.
Skiing on the softest, driest, quietest snow is drawn for us.The feeling when your skis don’t touch the hand pack. Feeling your skis glide effortlessly while you’re up to your knees. Leaving precision ski marks in the untouched fresh powder. These clean curves in the snow. The often puffs of powder that splashes up your front to reconfirm you are skiing in the depths.
I spend my summers thinking about how I would ski the first snowfall of the season. Sensing the feeling of nothingness. It’s an airy feeling, to say the least, but when you make that one turn and everything goes well you know you are hooked. The rest of your life will either be talking about how good this turn was or when you are next going to have the same feeling.
