Maritime Goes Intermountain

Did a quick tour with the homey Erik from Superhappywax on Saturday.  Nothing crazy, just a get out and stretch the legs/start working off the Christmas cookies tour, plus this was Erik’s first time on a split so we just did some low angle volcano skipping.  Weather varied between beautiful bluebird and cold to fogged in and flat light (fortunately we had a few beers to help us wait that out).  Snow varied between bulletproof and wind scoured to little pockets of fluff.  The snow was that crazy dry ultra abrasive/shining like diamonds in the sun stuff, not your typical PNW conditions.  I think this is what the the Utahrado folks ride on the usual.  Only saw five others on the mountain all day.  Good times, good times.

Nothing like breaking in a pair of boots on a tour. Shout out to the homey drex from nwbroweather! Still owe ya
