Not only has the snow been great but the weather and daylight are markedly improved. Today the sun was shinning bright and even last weekend between snow showers I needed sunglasses and sunscreen.
This weekend I have Rigging for Rescue Training with Seattle Mountain Rescue but I am hoping that by the following weekend I will be out on my new ski setup. Last weekend I climbed about 5000ft of elevation while backcountry skiing. My new much lighter skis and bindings should make that a little easier and give me more energy to enjoy each downhill run.
