90 Second Escape: The Peak, of Pow

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: The Peak, of Pow

Every pursuit has it peak experience. For local hikers, it was a day such yesterday: a 70-degree day with relentless blue skies in the dead of winter. The stark winter landscape minus the stark winter cold. A once-in-a-while opportunity that’s not to be missed.

For skiers, the peak is a foot and a half of fresh powder. First tracks through fluff so forgiving that even when you do succumb to gravity, the fall to earth is bliss.

In a departure from our Monday feature, we share 97 seconds of fresh pow courtesy skier Jake Cohn and Outside Television. Enjoy the escape.
