Broken gear != broken trip

January 15, 2011

When I realized that biochem lab was not being held on the first week of school, I called Paul and asked him if I could go skiing with him.  Thirty minutes later he stopped his bus in front of my house.

Four of us rode up the canyon in that bus, and I was the only non-splitboarder in the crew.  I was a pariah among pariahs.

Instead of writing a long and convoluted story about the myriad difficulties we had on this trip, I will just say that two of the three rental splitboards broke, Nate hitched a short ride with some snowmobilers, and there was a lot of bootpacking and frustration.

Even though there were a lot of setbacks on this trip, we had a really good time.  Everyone was positive and we still managed to have some fun.  Plus, we got to ride in the bus.
