Fresh Powder

Your Shot photographer Victor Troyanov captures a skiier flying down the Rila mountain range in Bulgaria. "After a very long period of dynamic and moody weather, the end of March gave a few clear spring days with new powder snow cover," giving skiiers a chance to try some new tricks, he says.
