we had such a fun weekend with jay and emily hassell. 

food photos.  best quinoa salad in the world.  mmmm.  now i'm craving it.

jay's face is the only visible skin.  snow HURTS when you're flying (ha!) down the mountain

love this shot

p and i stayed and skied on sunday after the hassells left.  the conditions were PERFECT.  look at that powder!   probably best ski day of the 3 1/2 seasons we've been out here.
