Ah, free in the wilderness...communing with nature.

For some reason the first thing I looked for was to see if a guy in the bottom 1/3 of the shot had fallen down with the rest of the crowd well on their way... Not that such a thing would be funny or anything...

I wonder if there is road rage like they would have if they were in cars like that? This angle of shot brought to you so those that were in it feel like they were skiing downhill...lol

Obviously not America, they'd all be on snowmobiles.

Have to be careful in America if they are not wearing an orange vest a hunter could mistake them for some wild game to shoot at...lol.. Not all hunters are like that.

I showed this image to my wife who used to ski in upstate NY and also in Colorado. Her remark was that there is a certain sharp noise that is associated with the motion of sliding your ski through the snow. I have to wonder what the sound must have been like of thousands so close together.

The nice part of x country skiing in the states is that nobody else is doing it...

Now THESE are the lemmings which that Webscalpel guy over in Photoshop was talking about...

Well that would explain the angle. It looks downhill but there is that big cliff that they missed putting in the picture :p

I am not sure if anyone is even remotely interested in this, but this pic is probably from "vasaloppet", a swedish skiing contest with something like 14 000 skiers competing over 90 kilometers. For more info: http://www.vasaloppet.se/wps/VasaCMS...idan/en/2.html
