Mid-way down my own private Dawn Patrol.
After a mad rush to change clothes and clean up Patsy, Montana and I piled into the car and drove to work. Chris Lange took Casey, Randal and I on a 9:00am morning tour of Roundhouse Chair, Sympathy Face, Yellow Trail, Scott Chair, Scott Chute, Scott Chair, and Promised Land in 30 minutes flat. Waist deep powder the entire time - not bad for a morning session.
I taught a beginner adult class all day - something I don't mind right now because I'm learning too. After years of working with intermediate skiers in the backcountry, I'm suddenly introducing the sport with complete novices on the groomed. Kinda cool. After class ended I caught up with Rob, Andrew, and Matt, and Chris gave us an "assignment tour" (my name). We skied/boarded Roundhouse Chair, Sympathy Face, Fall Line, Yellow Trail, Scott Chair, down one of the Lakeview runs, Sherwood Chair, Sherwood Cliffs, Hot Wheels Gully, Yellow Chair, Ladies Slalom to Gunners' to the base. A lot of packed, a fair bit of tracked, and a final bit of untracked as we finished the day at 4:00pm.
Skate back to the locker room to stack the gear, change, and meet Patsy out at the Lodge for the slow drive back to the cabin. I'm ready to hit "repeat" for tomorrow!
