ian gets up early (and likes it)
February 23, 2010
I like skiing. I like skiing even more than I like biking.
There, I said it.
And now that my kids are to the point where there are virtually no restrictions on where I can take them skiing, things have entered a whole new level. And it’s awesome.
Saturday, at Snowbird, Holden (11) was trying to choose between hiking up to High Baldy, traversing to the Gad Chutes, or just hunting for little kickers to hit. When Maddy comes, every run is a race to the bottom. How can you go wrong?
And today, I bucked the system, told the Man (of course, maybe in this situation, I am the Man) where to go, and woke Ian up at 4:30am, and dragged him up Toledo Bowl, down Holy Toledo, back up to the Superior ridge, and down Little Superior.
Livin’ the dream. Ben, Rob, and Rick (or, as I call them, the A Team) let me n Ian tag along this morning.
Take a look:
Of course, what backcountry tour would be complete without a little thummin?
