I'm elated to have skied my first real big, steep line in New Mexico with no less than Ryan and Naomi. 

It looked too good on Sunday not to return.


Ryan and Naomi ski below the choke.


This was my first experience with spring snow of this quality and consolidation in the Rockies.  Nice.

Thanks for the report from your part of the world Sky.  Good to see that Ryan is recovering from the cold from hell.  That dry continental air will dry out the lungs, eh....
