Welcome back winter!  Yesterday we enjoyed one of those days where the weather, group vibe and snow conditions all aligned ideally.  The wind held off for the most part, making skinning in sunny, single digits a real treat by PNW standards.  We observed no instabilities on SW aspects, as well as very minimal solar effects.

Smiles and fist bumps were contagious at the end of each run as we celebrated the return of winter; here's to a killer 13/14 PNW ski season!

Damm...that looks like heaven. Maybe I'm going to have to spend some $ on gas? Send some of that cold smoke my way!
