Huge Hugh

Give a guy a camera and you get a photographer. It’s been a blast coaxing subjects to rocket through powder and fling themselves off rocks and rollers during one of the best ski weeks of the season.

It might be hibernation time as the President’s Day week crowds descend on the hills. Many season passes are blacked out this weekend, and there’s a hint of rain in the forecast.

But we definitely got while the gettin’ was good. The legendary Hugh of Hugh’s Blog fame showed me some of the nooks and crannies of Smugglers' Notch on Thursday. The man knows the mountain and the mountain knows him. I don’t think he went 100 feet without someone giving him a shout out. Classic Vermont community ski nut.

That's Hugh taking flight. That's me leaning into an overly set-up powder shot. Those are some cotton candy clouds hanging over the peaks surrounding Smuggs.
