Sunshine skiing above the clouds

Skiing above a blanket of clouds this morning.

The Skimeister and I went skiing at Smugglers’ Notch this morning, and we were delighted to find that we’d start by skiing above the clouds!

Check out some photos from our morning atop Madonna and Sterling peaks. And enjoy this sunny weather!
