Quick Overview

Precipitation To The Dance sketches the start of a skier's powder morning — that rare moment that skiers live for. In the first scene, it is night, and the snow falls peacefully, gloriously, and lyrically. With little transition, the second scene describes the smooth beauty of the snow as seen from the rising lift: the white, slow undulations over the land and the heavy tufts on the tree limbs. Anticipation finally gives way to the third scene, when the skiers leap from the lifts and dance through the powder in a rollicking jig that includes jumps, turns, and a triumphal return to the mountain base.
