Day 45 January 7, 2014
Super warm days and now clear cold nights. You know what that means? Boiler plate frozen nasty in the morning and mushball goo in the afternoon. Skiing in between these extremes is the only way to go unless you can find some nice shady north face inbounds terrain. This is the time of the ski season to work on your technical skills (aka actual skiing ability).
Side note: Most skiers and snowboarders who call the Central and Northern Rockies their home have a dramatically over-inflated sense of their actual skiing and riding abilities because of the normal SOFT conditions. Hardpack variable conditions make you a real skier... like these guys
