It’s a nice long Presidents weekend. A good time to go outside to ski, snowboard or ice skate. What winter activity do you like to do?

The Olympics have come to a close, but winter carries on, here in the Northeast. It seems like we’ve had a snowstorm every week, this season. I know it’s not impressive compared to Colorado, but for New York city, it almost breaks records. The total this winter, so far, is 56.6 inches, making for very good conditions in skiing, snowboarding and snowball fights.
This is my drawing of a downhill skiier, inspired by the Olympic competition of the Super-G where speed and perfectly timed snow carving dictate the chance of winning a medal by hudredths of a second.

The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi added a new event called Slope Style for snowboarders and skiers. Slope style presentation is more inline, as opposed to alternating jumps on opposite ends of a half-pipe.
This is my drawing of a snowboarder doing a front grab Ollie. It is included in my set of Winter sport postcards in my store.

The sport of luge involves one or two people laying on their backs on a sled. Mechanics of steering the sled is done by the rider’s leg flexing against the blade. There are two other sled racing sports in the olympics – the bobsled and skeleton. Luge is the fastest of the three races with speeds at 90 mph.
