Blind Hollow

February 13, 2011

Some people might say that going on an overnight ski trip in the middle of a school week is irresponsible.  I would probably agree with those people.

Sam and I started skinning around 8:30 pm, and caught up with Paul, James, Haley, and Mandi about halfway on the trail to the yurt.  Finding a mostly-snow covered yurt in the dark with no trail was a little bit of a challenge, but we made it eventually.  Casey and Whitney showed up at the yurt at 3:30 in morning, and I wondered whether or not they had made the right choice in leaving so late.  We slept in, ate pancakes, scrambled eggs, and hashbrowns, and went skiing.
