An exceptional Americano to start the day, then this for lunch. When ski season is over I’ll be soft-pedaling for a month.

The fog/cloud snow made it feel much warmer than the 5° that the thermometer said. Instead, too many layers had me feeling like I was in a schvitz. Quiet and eerie, glowing eyes every time I scanned the forest with my headlamp. Eager to climb higher out of the reach/motivation of a lower predator. Transitioning the first time and dropping into shin deep powder made the steep slow grind fade into a mild trouble, leaving behind fresh tracks earned by way of an easy, pillowy descent. Climb #2 was short and sweet, topping out to ski the steepest pitches of the morning, big turns on little skis. I need more time, not more daylight.
I managed to almost ski well the last few days, spring conditions and hubris that only comes from a few hundred thousand feet of earned turns.
Inside looking out.
