Priscilla Kimberly, or Cilla is quite an extraordinary woman. If you’ve ever been to any of our instructional events there’s a good chance that Cilla was there sharing her knowledge and love of backcountry skiing.
Cilla is not only a great backcountry skier and instructor, she is also an incredibly talented artist. Earlier last month she participated in our Northern Week-Long Tour which spent 8 days skiing from the Stowe area to the Canadian border. Some people write in a journal, others take photographs… Cilla likes to sketch.
I like making sketches during or after a trip because it helps me remember so much more than a written journal of my travels.
Personally, I think these are amazing. I’ve never really been able to draw, but it’s more than than the sheer quality of the sketches. I was really quite taken by some of them and I’m having a hard time putting my finger on why I like looking at these so much.
Anyway, what do you think? Are these just sketches or is there something more? Which one is your favorite and why? You can tell us on Facebook.
