Not a backcountry or lift served report, so here it is. 

After attending a very cool star party Saturday night, my 11yo daughter put down about 3K of steps for turns on the Palmer snowfield Sunday. 

She carried a pair of ~160cm Salomon Pocket Rockets with Naxo bindings on a day pack of mine that we really couldn't get tight enough to put the skis up on her shoulders.  I carried both our boots and my signature rig on my expedition pack.

We could have skinned from just above the lodge, but I like the White River ridge, where you're away from the public operations until reaching the Palmer top bench.  Its boots on dirt the whole way right now. 

I expected a short trip, but we took lots of 'water appreciation breaks' - her term, and she just kept trudging.  Nice turns on tracked afternoon corn. 

45 months for me.  She needs the next three months to make a year. 

Cheers.

Very Cool.
She'll make it a year for sure.
