    Couldn't resist posting this today was insane

    We decided to go skiing after school at lunch, the weather was perfect and there was new ultra light in the mountains. After school a mad dash was on to gather gear and get to the trail head. We had a solid crew of 5 skiers and only one with very little BC skiing experiance, he was kinda a gaper when it came to rigging skis and such but whatever, I was a gaper like that once too. :rolleyes: We hiked strait up to the top of mile high and looked out over the valley
    the crew

    Being interested in fly fishing by no means excludes us from appreciating many of the other outdoor pursuits done in beautiful and remote places...in fact, isn't what ALL this is about?

    I noticed at least one of you had tele boards...I'm one of those guys, and I would have given anything to be at the top with y'all. Thanks for the virtual vacation, powder monkey! :thumb:

    Sweet pics my man! :thumb: I've skied Alpenglow many a time. I don't know about the "line" you wanna ski...ya' must have a bigger pair than I do. The chute on the left maybe isn't so bad. Looks like avalanche city to me.
