Skiing and Skating

Weather here has been crappy for the last few days, but there is always something to do. Despite horrible looking conditions, Dave and I headed to Snowbowl yesterday to make some turns. The ski hill is closed, but they let people skin up in the off season while snow is still around. We got to the summit after 2 hours of approaching and found much better than expected conditions. The recent storms had left about 8 inches of new powder. Dave and I skied two different bowls before skiing at the resort back to the car for a total of around 5,000 feet. Not too bad for leisurely afternoon.


Today the weather has been great so far. Nick and I went to the skate park for a morning session. Skating has been fun, but we're still just easing our way back into the summer season. This afternoon's forecast isn't looking too good for flying so I'll probably head to the Bitterroots to climb in the sun. Maybe some pics from that later.
