Day 21

Wednesday's heat wave turned back to winter yesterday with temperatures around freezing and an inch or two of snow. It looked this morning like that was going to continue so I nearly didn't go out, not wanting to ski "dust on crust".

But by 10 am the sun was out so I headed out around noon. I almost gave up after half an hour because the snow was still quite crusty and I'd dressed quite lightly and was feeling cold, but then I found some spots with the right aspect to catch the sun and where the snow was starting to soften and I could just soak up the rays, so in the end I was out for a couple of hours and a total of 11,391 vertical ft.

Here's today's track. Sunnyside and lower Vagabond were particularly good.
