Cold Winter Morning

I have nothing to say about today’s short tour. The details are boring. No significant peak was bagged. No personal fitness goal was reached. I didn’t learn anything about myself. It was just another day out in the mountains. Just another day of skiing. Just the same actions, repeated: put jacket on, remove skins, tighten boots, change gloves. Lock the bindings down and step in to the skis – downhill ski first. Shuffle back and forth a bit and feel how the boots are tight now and the bindings locked. Discuss plans and avalanche possibilities and also discuss how cold it is today. I’ll watch you from that spot down there. Ready?

Ryan did a backflip off this jump. Unfortunately, I missed the shot. Photo by Jacob B.
