    Snowy weekend

    The lifts aren't running here yet (Wednesday!) but the skiing away from the lifts is really good! I got out on a couple of different ski outings this weekend.

    First was some Nordic at a nearby area called Mill Creek with my wife on Saturday. Tons of new snow with 2+ Ft. on the ground. It was warm so that new snow was sticky making xc more of a plod, but it was still fun and really beautiful!

    Then yesterday I went on a nice tour up Mt. Emmons with a buddy to ski a couple of different aspects. First we skied Red Lady Glades to get warmed up. Great snow!

    Saw some fast friends on the skin track. They lapped us! (that's Mt. Crested Butte in the background on the left)

    With the snow looking nice and stable we headed back up for lap in Red Lady Bowl with is a lot more exposed and a bigger run. It was fantastic!
    The light went a bit flat from time to time but was generally good enough for skiing and photos.

    Happy to see some ski photos here - even if I can't partake myself, yet

    The fifth photo, looking across at Crested Butte, it really nice. I like how you framed the mountain between the two trees. And that band of cloud floating in the middle is the frosting on the cake for me.
