January 11, 2013 Summit West
« on: 01/11/13, 04:55 PM »

Jill and I arrived at Summit West at noon.† The sun was shining, there was blue sky, and the slopes were being groomed.† The lifts would open at 4pm, so it was the perfect time for climbing on the groomers.† It was in the 20ís with no wind. This was a special day:† Jill had new boots and poles, and it was the first day that Iíve climbed since having my pulmonary veins stented last summer at the Mayo Clinic.† †The stents opened up those veins so that Iím getting more oxygenated blood flowing through my heart Ė and I could really feel the difference!† We only climbed 720vf, but it felt great.† I can breathe again!† I started climbing, and Jill just watched me with a big smile.† It took us 50 minute to climb the 720vf, but it was great.† It was so good to be out climbing again, and Summit West was the perfect place for the first time out.† And it was fun to ski a groomerís line to practice short turns.† Jill was having fun skiing with her backcountry gear.† Iím feeling good.
