I was living in Corner Brook Newfoundland this season, and mostly skiing at Marble Mountain. It was my first season living away from home, and I didn't have a vehicle which meant some interesting transportation situations to and from Marble Mountain.

At home for Christmas vacation my brothers had a decent backyard setup on the go, so we did a lot of jibbing. My friend Alyre had gotten new Rossi Sprayers so we switched our skis around for the fun of it. Photo by Nat Baker (NattyB).

After Xmas, my family went to Maine to visit relatives and do some skiing. This is a hip in my (late) grandmother's driveway. Skiing by Nat Baker. Photo by me.
We went to a popular sliding area at a golf course in Blue Hill, Maine which is not really close to any ski hills. We built a jump there and skied around in the trees. For some reason it was one of my favourite days of the season. Skier: Edwin Baker. Photo: Will Baker (skip.e.i.).
We also visited Sunday River, Maine, but no photos were taken because rapid snow accumulation resulted in skiing becoming the first priority. We spent a short time at Mt. Abram and Shawnee Peak Maine as well, which were both fun places to ski.
After Christmas break of course I had to go back to school in Corner Brook, and with mounting anticipation I sped towards Marble Mountain.This is an unknown skier(if it's someone on here, please identify yourself) at Marble. January? February?

I spent my last resort day at Sugarloaf, Maine with my brother Edwin. It was fun. Photo: Edwin Baker
The weekend prior to this, I went to Crabbe with both my brothers and two friends. It turned out to be Crabbe's last day, and there is no photographic evidence because we were skiing too much to takepictures.
I forgot about this picture, but it's at Gros Morne National park in Newfoundland. With my Outdoor pursuits class at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, I went on a winter camping trip which involved studying the snow pack. It was a really fun trip, even though I wasn't able to bring my skis. The snow had a thick ice crust anyway, as you can see from the glare on the surface, so skiing was out of the question anyway. We determined that any avalanches would be very unlikely, after careful study of our snowpits. Rutsch block and compression tests were deemed unnecessary.
Here's a short edit I made of the season for your entertainment:
