Learning Young At Silver Mountain

Although the snow shows no sign of letting up in the mountains of the Inland Northwest, there was some grass poking through the snow on Dec. 26, 2009, when Northwest Elite Photographer Chris Thompson snapped this photo on Silver Mountain. Chris reports to Facebook Friends that he hated "using polarizers on portraits, but I had to; just to get some color out of the sky." You can see more of Chris's photography on his Facebook site and on Northwest Elite Photography.

Question: When did you learn to ski or snowboard? And where?
