It's funny, this day started out with high ambitions to very low ambitions due to the high winds and wind slab building on our objective. Then a little of Ben's fine bourbon and a few little Pow pockets, on lee trees, had our ambitions rekindled.
We ended up finding some good 1200vf  protected gullies. With weak legs after a few laps our ambitions were lowering, but Alas Scott's ( with his later arrival) ambition level higher than ours, (and us not to deny his meter). So up for another one we went.... Thanks for the boost.  Smiley

despite the wind, it turned out to be a pretty fun day.  thanks carl & jeff for breaking trail and scott for convincing us to do a third lap, which turned out to be the best.  i should've brought more whiskey!
