>I needed a little fresh air and exercise today but I didn’t have all day so I headed to Stouts Mt for a lap. Out of the car at 10:45 it was 27 degrees and I was able to start skinning from the road’s edge, which had been bare last week. And it was pristine; untouched snow except for one fellow skinner who had the same idea. I worked myself up the east ridge, breaking trail in 8-10 new inches, until I got to about the 7700 ft mark. The ski down was soft, creamy and in decidedly winter-like snow! Never did see the other skier; was that you Eric?
Winter skiing isn’t over yet!
With this new month started, I have now skied 18 consecutive months, all locally!
