I just did my very first AT trip of my life and LOVED IT! I have not been on skis in over 10 years so I was a little nervous about coming down, but it really is like riding a bike. I may not have the nerves that I did when I was younger, but I was able to make it down. We made it to Muir by 10:15 am and headed down by about 11:00 am. The snow from Muir to Pebble Creek was FANTASTIC! Pebble creek and beyond it was quite heavy and sloppy. I was pleased with my new skis in the slop, but was quite spoiled from the Muir snowfield ride. Next time I will plan on hitting Muir by 8 am and promptly heading down to avoid the slop. I can't wait to do some touring this winter!!!

ps. Thanks to those of you who gave advice on Dynafit bindings. Love them!
