warm and wet

It warmed up a tonne today, freezing levels went to tree line. It made for a severely challenging day. I broke trail for 3300ft in 30+cms of snow and had a nice fast run before it warmed up. By the second lap the snow had changed to glop. aron and Joey joined me for the second and then left when they realized how much it had changed .Then on the way up the skin track my skis started clumping, like mad. It was harder than when i had broken trail. If there is anything that can crush me on a skin track it is heavy skis, skis with inches of snow stuck to them. Somehow I managed to dig deep and force out a few shitty runs.  I continued to pound it till 5pm, a 10 hr day for 12 950 ft…hard earned.
