Snowboarders will do almost anything to put their tracks down hard to get to slopes. It would have been a difficult slog to get to the top of that slope and an even harder long walk out in deep snow!

Despite its appearance, it is a colour photo, there is a tinge of blue in the snow reflected off the sky.
