Blue skies. White snow. Ski racing action. It was another gorgeous day to be out on skis!

Today's cross-country ski races at the UVM Winter Carnival at Trapp Family Lodge featured freestyle (or skating) races. Both men and women skied 10 km. This time, UVM's Caitlin Patterson came out on top. On the men's side, Middlebury's Patrick Johnson won for a second day in a row.

I photographed the women's race today. Enjoy the photos!

Today the conditions called for a skating on the trails at Trapps, so that's what I did. The snow was granular and fast. The views were great again today with blue skies and some white, puffy clouds. A great weekend to be out skiing!
