It seems almost frivolous to be writing about skiing when the COVID-19 epidemic is weighing so heavily on my mind, but I also think it’s important to keep having fun and doing what brings us joy. Here’s one of two updates on recent activity. More soon.
A gloomy day on the brink of a storm, pelted by grauppel, stiff but skiable snow, and another line in the books.
Another gloomy day of late-winter skiing. Undermotivated and unable to find a partner, I went to have a look at Mineral Fork’s “Room of Doom” and opted for a steep face I’d eyed all season.
Little Pine East
A few days after Homicide, when Spring announced itself. A late start after working late the night before. Sprinted up and down in time for safety and corn.
Headed to a bigger objective when I realized that I’d committed to remaining in cell service for the day. South-facing corn off the Superior ridgeline was a good consolation prize.
Conversion back to Winter for a moment. Scott and I took the long way from the very bottom of Day’s fork to ski the best pow at the top. Three untracked lines of blower.
