Today Ashley and I went backcountry skiing in Indian Peaks. We tagged along with Keith, Chris, Shawn, and Tyler. We were pleasantly surprised by beautiful weather after anticipating heinous winds. It was still a bit chilly (note Ashley's bundledupedness in the photo below), but at least the snow was highly variable, crusty, and nearly impossible to ski gracefully.
The evil snow conditions could not compensate for the fact that we were in the beautiful and secluded backcountry. We skied the entire day without seeing another person.
