Oct. 2010-Sept. 2011, First TAY
« on: 09/06/11, 10:06 PM »

Seasons seem to begin and end at Paradise for me.  Finally strung together 12 consecutive months for the first time...and it is easy to do right now.  I would echo the quality of the Paradise Glacier right now.  20 minute hike to continuous snow, 2500 vf with one 20 foot carry, lots of purty flowers, cracks obvious. Here's a link to a video of our year, click 720p

Doesn't count...with this kind of motivation you have to go 3x per month.

Now you did it.
His next 12 Months will likely be solo... and not necessarily just solo skiing. Roll Eyes

I don't know about Macs, but Windows 7 has a pretty sweet built in screen capture program.

On a Mac, it's Shift,Apple,4. Then drag/expand to what you want to take a picture of. It then saves directly to the desktop. Sweet!!! I never knew...

And depending on the person, if they're that motivated, it may be 3x's/day!

Winchester - off the Mt. Baker Highway. It's a pretty sweet hut with tons of access right out the front door. We only spent one night there and I was pretty wiped so we ended up not skiing too much more. There's about 7 miles of road to slog through and then a short up to the hut. We went late spring so we only had about 5 miles of road. Larabee will be on the list next time around.
