Anyone and everyone who skis can all agree that turning on skis as you descend the slope is pure bliss. To some degree, our days out are spent seeking aesthetic lines in order to achieve these moments of bliss.
This weekend however focused more on the exploring aspect. After examining topo maps on Friday evening, Mitch and I set out to pioneer an area new to us. Curiously we meandered one corner to the next, one knoll after another, and ended up boot packing up to a ridge. The skiing was absolutely incredible, beyond what I knew was possible in K-country. Turning in between big tree trunks, moving with large amounts of fresh powder, I was convinced I was transported magically to another land.
Exploration for the win!
