AM - 10 miles.

PM - 10 miles (5.5 w/ Andrea).

Tonight I lost nearly 7" of hair. I wasn't allowed to have it longer than Andrea's at our wedding. The sacrifices and compromises that I make... I should get a medal for this one!

AM - Collins lap w/ Andrea [1800']. We were planning on Baldy Chutes but one stupid cloud in the wrong place kept the snow frozen and we couldn't wait around.

PM - 10 miles (~5 w/ Andrea and Alistar the dog).

AM - Pipeline Couloir + Red Stack NE face [4800']. A fantastic morning. Caught the Pipeline in even better conditions than when we skied it last year, and then wrapped around and skied a new (to us) line on Red Stack to up the adventure ante. We were able to ski back to within 100 feet of the jeep at Creekside, which is sort of unbelievable considering the lower elevation and the fact the temperature is pushing 150 degrees (or something in that ballpark).

PM - 9 miles (4.5 w/ Andrea).

I really like this panoramic.

Squeezing out every last possible turn.

AM - A pair of hot laps on Main Chute to close out the '15-16 ski season [3900'].

We probably could (and I almost certainly would) stretch it out a little further, but Andrea and I are going to be gone the next couple weekends. The timing was perfect for the season finale - I hit 100 days right on the money. I think we took advantage of just about every flake of snow we possibly could have this year: Lots of Wasatch powder days. Road trips to Sun Valley, Jackson, and Aspen. Spring/Summer chuting. Explored new terrain and re-visited old favorites. Crossed a few items off the bucket list, and added plenty more. Chasing 100 days might seem silly in some ways, but 100 days on skis is 100 days in the mountains, sliding around on snow... and I don't know how you can really top that*.

Last winter my excitement for skiing was renewed, but this year it really became my primary passion again and I just loved it. I've already been thinking about the places I want to ski next year - Uintas, La Sals, Rubys, etc. There are so many places to explore and enjoy, even right in the Central Wasatch, that we haven't scratched the surface on yet.

I'm an everyday runner, but definitely not a year-round racer anymore. Going forward, there is a part of me that still wants to take another crack at racing a marathon before the next ski season begins. And there is also a part of me that wonders whether I even have it in me? I'm not sure if that makes me more or less likely to want to try. We'll see... the next two months are going to be even busier than usual, so "to train or not to train" will be a question for early August. My gut feeling is that I'll give it a shot.

*Maybe eliminating most of the early and mid-season Brighton laps?

PM - 4 miles w/ Andrea.
