As "social distancing" became the watchword with the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic in the late winter of 2020, many ski resorts around the USA were forced to close early for the season.  Back-country skiing, which involves much less close contact, became one of the few ways in which avid skiers could safely enjoy the wide-open spaces of the Rocky Mountain region.  Case in point is this marvelous drone video by top contributor HAYDEN KAST, who filmed himself in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado.  

Late Winter in American Fork Canyon
