AM/PM - Ski tour w/ Andrea: Started at the White Pine trailhead and skied the Pink Pine ridge x 5 laps [6600']. I know I sound like a broken record but the skiing was incredible... again. Steep and deep! The over-producing storm on Thursday night set us up with world-class conditions today. Despite the potentially negative impact it will have on the snow conditions for tomorrow, it was also really nice to be out in the sunshine and skiing under blue skies all day!

I love this winter so much.

AM/PM - Ski tour w/ Andrea: White Pine TH to Maybird Gulch. Skied 3 laps in Maybird and 2 in Red Pine [4500']. All powder... what's new? 

We went out today with the objective of exploring and skiing in a new area. Maybird was simply incredible - the higher alpine terrain justs blows your mind... for both looking at and skiing! Easily my favorite day of the year so far. Great scenery, perfect weather, hero snow.

I didn't get around to running this weekend :-)

Our streak of insanely good skiing every weekend finally ended, but it was still nice to get up high for a little bit this afternoon.

PM - 24 miles. First 12 w/ Andrea and then did another 12 with more hills. Longest run in about a year. Since we didn't ski today, I figured I might as well take advantage of the cleaned out air this afternoon.

Fingers crossed for the prompt return of El Nino!

AM/PM - Lift skiing at Alta. We had a friend in town (who had never skied out West) for the day so we gave her the VIP package... a day of alpine glisse followed by hot tub / apres ski at the Peruvian Lodge.

PM - Ski tour w/ Andrea: Adventures in Upper White Pine - skied Red Baldy's NW face and Red Stack's center Tri Chute [5000']. Snow conditions were "not terrible" at times and "pretty decent" at others... ranging from death sun crust to windboard to recycled chalk (that's actually a good one) to isothermal summer slush, depending on aspect and elevation. I'm hoping for some winter weather to return in March, but I'll take the blue skies and these views for the time being.

AM/PM - Lift skiing at Solitude w/ Andrea and her parents on a warm, sunny day. Fun spring-like conditions for groomers, moguls, and goggle-tanning.

Ski day #50 of the season for me. The century mark is potentially in play, but probably a bit of a stretch. Models are showing that El Nino (ie. snow!) will return in mid-March. I just want some more powder days... like 5-6 weekends in a row, again. That's all I ask for!

AM/PM - Lift skiing at Snowbasin w/ Andrea and her parents. Warm and sunny again. The snow was fun... downright slushy at times due to the lower elevation.

PM - 5 miles w/ Andrea.

It was somewhat heartbreaking to not ski on such a beautiful day, but the North's legs were too beat for another day on the slopes, and I couldn't justify spending the whole day out in the backcountry by myself. Running was a much more time efficient form of recreation today. The sacrifices I make to be every parent's dream son-in-law!
