Sweet report, thanks for sharing. I haven't been skiing very much lately (I'm one of those mountain biker/rock climbers), but this is what the spirit is all about!

Nice KLW!  That was a very fun trip report to read.  Thanks!  Reminds me of my first August awhile back.  You're not the only one whose friends eyes' glaze over when we start droning on about summer skiing.  Great pictures, too.  Thanks for the inspiration.

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.

Nice report.  I made some turns with you on Marys this past season and also have the BC's.  You were getting after it that day and looks like you have not stopped.  Looking forward to seeing you back on Marys this winter.

Nice report and pictures!  I've always thought about heading in that way late in the year....still looks pretty good!  Welcome to the addiction!
