Just a few ski tours over Christmas Weekend.
With enough wonderful snow locally, it was time to get the skis out.
Having no family of social obligations, the a past partner and I decided to go skiing on Christmas day.
The snow started coming down rather hard by the time we finished and made it home. A real white Christmas.
The roads were sloppy on the 26th, so a good day to WFH.
Saturday and Sunday saw us out again on skis.
I did a longer tour solo on Saturday.
The high point of the day, as usual, proved to be a great place to catch a break and enjoy a thermos of hot coffee.
Even if it was a bit windy and snowy!
The following Sunday, the Mrs and I did another tour together. The weather was even more brisk.
We made it to the cusp of treeline and called it good.
We skied back down a little bit, ducked into the trees and enjoyed a hot beverage.
The weather was quite cold, even 5000′ lower. But a welcoming pot of coconut curry chicken soup waited in the crock pot. A simple meal but one that tasted wonderful.
Here’s to a wonderful first weekend of skiing!
