September 1, 2014, Rollins Pass, CO
« on: 09/01/14, 08:27 PM »

Tom Szwedko ended up skiing 349 of 366 days for the year from sep 01, 2013 to aug 31, 2014. Today he skied with Arlen, Jim Becia, and Doug on Rollins pass CO.  He ended up with just over 1000 vt ft yo-yo up and down near King Lake. In the distance about 2 miles he could see the about 800 vt ft Skyscraper glacier above Bob Lake.  The weather was a steady 40mph wind at the pass with 39F.  Wind was OK once below the pass ridge of continental divide.   They ran into a couple other turns-all-years skiers today including Jerry Amendola who has 23 years, as Tom finished 35 years of monthly skiing.

Where are the inspiring photos of you and your high country companions? You know, the ones where you are "just friends..."

Silas, Tom's streak is most impressive, I don't think I could be so dedicated/obsessed but it is one heck of an effort.
