Alba Adventures- Season 3 EP3 - Acceptance - Pico, VT
This has been arguably one of the hardest winter seasons for the East ever as many of you know. From Arctic temps of -21F to 60F all in one day; it has been hard for many of East coast skiers and riders to not be sad or depressed due to this.
Each and every day we feel for the people that earn their living through winter, through snow. We also wonder if any of our favorite runs or mountains will open; or if they can recover from the effects of the warmest El Nino ever.
It's been tough to remain motivated to ski and ride this winter given the fickle weather we have been having but, we are thankful for the days we have had. The management at Killington and Pico have been working round the clock to help their patrons, make snow and be sure we have a winter. I know the same applies for all the mountains on the East
We are also thankful to have met and become friends with the Erlandsens who seem to make the best of everything. Meeting up with them over the Presidents week changed our impression of what it means to have a good time. As long as you have some snow, and you can ski on it, that is sometimes all it takes.
Please do take the time to watch our latest webisode titled "Acceptance". Accepting whatever this Winter has given, will bring and making the best of it.
Storytelling and video quality continue to improve Ray.
Good luck with all challenges, and have a great weekend.
Hey Harvey.. I have to blame you for this... Thank you. Nevada is sick and it snowed. I think I might take my son up tomorrow 1st thing - get to our house - change then head to our mountain.
You know I mean in a loving way Harvey... You really pushed us to make better edits and they are getting better indeed.. Well so, we think. Just to long for some but, the ones that watch it, like them.. Getting more feedback than ever.
Nevada got either some weird bite or something like a flu that has her knocked out. Not sure what it is and the docs are confused too. So, sticking around town. Weird being home on a Saturday. Make some turns for us today. All of you.
Oh - I wanted to add this.. Each of our videos from this year has a message in case you have not noticed ;)
The ice melting at the start represents the tears of Vermont. You will also notice a vignetted filter - that is supposed to resemble my eye or an eye looking .. It's subtle. Also, the colors I made more dreamy.. Indicating that it can be so much fun that its surreal. Anyway, things we were discussing at 2AM when we edited this.
