Just skiing

Not a lot (of snow), but more than enough for the moment.

Boogies and all.

We counted six melt-freeze crusts in four feet of snow.  Upper slopes will wait until things sort themselves out.

Yep.

Here, we call this irony.

  1. Hi Dave,
    sorry for my bad English.
    Could you please write as next „gear review” entry, how do you carry your essential things handy with you?
    Things like i.e. camera (handy/water resistance?), map, compass, fire(starter), knife, headlamp, FAK, wallet…
    …carrying in the backpack (stuff sack), side pocket, pouch, clothing?
    Thanks’ a lot,
    Kai

    1. No problem Kai. Thanks for reading.

      My camera is always in a little Lowe Pro shoulder case under my outer shell. Keeps the snow off, and in the winter keeps it warm so the battery doesn’t die. And a camera in the pack doesn’t take many pictures.

      On a day trip like the above everything in the pack aside from my shovel and waterbottle is in either a small or large drybag. The small one has all the odd stuff: headlamp, emergency kit, ski straps, etc. The big one had goggles, insulated pants, insulated parka, extra gloves/mittens, and lunch.
