Today I went backcountry skiing with a couple of local friends and julie's sister.  We headed up mineral fork (link is something I found on youtube) and climbed for a few thousand feet to the ridge.  We were the first in since the big storm so we had to break trail which wasn't too much fun...lots of work.

We did 3 laps at the top and the snow was incredible...17" of fresh powder, low avy danger, no tracks, blue skies.  An awesome day.  

My legs/body are seriously trashed.  I'm giving myself a conservative 150TSS  for all the climbing today (but it felt like >250!).  I'm getting my money's worth on this trip for sure.  Tomorrow???
