Ended my season in great form with my son as guide, snow boarder extraordinaire nephew from New England and myself on a 4 day, 800+ mi. road trip seeking the snow and running from rain. Silver, Rainier, Hood then Silver on a solo ski. Well, solo as without the team but I was fortunate to meet and greet a number of T-A-Y posters. Being on Rainier the day of the fatal slide was truly eerie but I can't wait until for my return to the PNW snow next year.
