Good Good Things

Kristina and Selena skinning up

Hanukkah Harry and Santa Claus joined forces yesterday for an awesome gift! Ian, Kristina, Selena and I rallied to Roger's Pass for what we thought would be mediocre skiing at best. But what we found was one of the best runs of the year!

When the alarm went off in Canmore at 5:30 am, I was within a nanometer of going back to sleep. But for some reason that I can't really explain, I decided to stick with the plan and drive the two hours to Golden. With caffeine racing through my veins and The Descendents blasting through the speakers, I arrived at Kristina's place in G-town thoroughly amped. After more coffee, we transferred all our gear in to Kristina's van and rallied to the Bostock parking lot.

Hey Buddy, pass the Grand Marnier!

By the time we got above tree line, the sun was out and it was a beautiful day

HA! Take that!
