Film #JM150638: America ski trip

Random film time! This is film #JM150638, a roll of Agfa HDC 400-2, scanned with Restore Fading enabled as it's the best part of 20 years old and has come a long way...

Can you guess where this is?



Or how about this?



This should be fairly obvious:



Yes, that's the New York skyline! I visited back in 1999ish - my school had arranged a ski trip at the imaginatively named Mount Snow in Vermont, and to get there we flew to JFK Airport before taking a coach trip for the rest of the way. In New York the coach driver gave us a guided tour of the city, and we even got to step inside the Empire State Building. Sadly we only got as far as the lobby as the viewing platforms were closed or something and we didn't have enough time to wait.

I've got a few more photos from the coach journey - here's one of a random warship (a carrier?) moored somewhere around New York:



And the only photo I have of the former World Trade Center:



Finally we arrived at Mount Snow:



It was quite late in the season - early April - when we were there and so the thaw was well and truly underway. Enough of the pistes were still open that we could get plenty of skiing in, though I don't have any photos of the slopes on this film. Instead, I have photos from somewhere else in America that we visited on one of the days...





This I think is the USS Constitution:



And that's it for this film!
