Wanting what you get

It’s not always about getting what you want. Especially this season, it seems to just not be happening (yet!).

And, this past Monday what we got was just a little refresher of pow on top of the old rain crust. Did we want to ski? You bet!
So, original-FIS got busy in their backyard. And adjunct-FIS got in the car at 5am, in order to get in the skin track an hour before dawn. It was a work day after all…

No epic powder day for us, or amazing new line. But, it felt good, because whether it was over head blower, or just a few inches, we wanted it.

The sun came up as we reached the top.

Gear was readied as we noshed some breakfast

and a favorite old line was seen for the thousandth time, but made fresh again with just a touch of snow. Who could not want to ski this?

So, get after it, and want what you get. The gettin’s pretty good.

    Great shots, Peter!
    Really love the out the window and the first skiing shots – really can’t beat that early morning light.

    Way to nail those first turns shots. Man, that light was fantastic. And all of this in spite of Carter.

    Nice shots – but what happened to Sunday’s George TR? I keep hitting refresh to no avail…

    Beauty, eh. I wish I could go there too but my sideways-sliding kind aren’t welcome. ;)

    powhounddd, sideways sliders are welcome to skin up with us anytime. We’ve schuss’d Gen Stark Mtn many times with boarders, it’s not an issue.

      Hey that’s great to hear!!! Looks like it was a real nice morning. I can’t wait to feel some new snow under-skins….
