Out the back door!! Middle Springs and Mount Rundle on a snowy day...
Yesterday, was one of those blue sky days where you just have to get out there and enjoy! The backcountry skiing right now, is not that nice for making turns. However, it is always nice to just get out and go touring! So that's what we did. A round trip of 4 hours to work off the turkey dinner and booze. I felt sluggish (hello, food hangover) but was certainly invigorated!
Here's some photos of my amazing day. Sunshine is only a 20 min. drive, a 10 min. cable car ride, a 7 minute chairlift and a 10 minute walk away from my house. That's only 47 minutes to access PARADISE!! Oh yeah and then you have to go walking on your skis for a few hours to access the goodies, we were out for 4 hours.

Go Speed Racer!The next day, the forecast was for a cold front to move in to our area and the temperatures to drop to -30c. I thought it would be good to get out for one last run before the arrival of the cold! I ran out along the Spray river, where the river was starting to freeze up.

So the answer to the question "What to do when it is -30c?" is to grin and bear it, run really fast and go for a hot tub in your back yard. The answer to the question "What to do when it is -42c?" is hibernate, relax and go for a hot tub in your back yard. Mmmm. I think I feel a nap coming on.....
