This was another good week of skiing in spite of the ongoing high pressure. Tuesday, we had a successful turnout for the GoreTex Wasatch Skimo Race, held during the on snow demo for the Outdoor Retailer Show. Wednesday, I found awesome crust and frozen tracks around Toledo and Grizzly. Thursday, Tom and I put in some hot laps up Raymond and found surfy facets on the northern aspects. Then today, the customary early Saturday morning crew ballooned to a party of 8. We wanted to stand on some summits and did just that. The skiing was a mixed bag but if the expectations are low enough, we find that it's always amazing!

|Tom gets after it even if people say the conditions suck. He doesn't care. This photo was taken after nearly 9000 feet of hard climbing. I went home and he put in another 3K in the dark. Ridiculous.|
