A little tired…
My legs are feeling a little punched today. Its been ten days of touring, not that they were all huge days, the smallest being 2000 and the largest 8400. But the smallest day might have been one of the hardest. There was 60 cm of fresh light snow but it blanketed a bunch of logs, rhododendrons and all sorts of rocks. So touring was super hard and we ended up getting nowhere and skiing nothing great.
We are still limited in where we can go but where we are going is usually pretty amazing up high with a variety of not great skiing down low. The Globe and Mail is interested in doing a story so one of their writers David Ebner came and enjoyed a day in the mountains with me. It was great that Dave could come out with me and actually experience some of my quest, it will give him a more personal view of what I am doing. He was able to enjoy some deep powder turns, and also he came over at night for a glass of wine and met Tracey and the kids.
As for snow conditions, they have changed drastically over the last week. Epic last weekend, freezing/very windy during the week, 40 cms of new snow lying on top of that windslab now, which is proving to be pretty amazing skiing. So the psych is back but the legs are tires today, no big skis and big runs today. Just the tlt5’s and the manaslus for some fast and easy vertical.
p.s. I am not posting my vertical per day this week, because of the contest. But don’t worry it is increasing daily.
