I got so excited about more snow this morning--I even got word from the patrol at Akakan to be sure and bring some big skis to enjoy the heavy powder--that I forgot to log in and report to you today! It's been snowing on and off throughout the day; right now it's coming down pretty heavy, and the word is there will be a good dump of fresh for the morning. Looks like a mission to one of the local peaks is in order!

Yesterday afternoon was a great day in the trees with daughter, just getting ready to enter junior high school and off from race practice for the day. She can out-carve me on the slopes, but it was great fun to take her into the woods and enjoy some fast, easy-skiing powder. Lots of grins for all involved, and absolutely no competition...

It's a great sport, people, and not just for teens in baggy pants!
