Colorado Update II

On Friday, Sean and I skied some most excellent powder on Woodland Mountain in the Indian Peaks Wilderness.  The pits we dug showed the depth of fresh snow to be between 1.5 and 2 feet deep, but for all practical purposes, it was bottomless.

Dane got back into town Friday night, so I "moved" up to Frisco where I'll be based for the next 2.5 weeks while we acclimate and condition for Denali.  Getting off on the right foot, we skied Quandary Peak (14,265') today.

The weather is still being quite funky.  It was cold and windy (good Denali training) on Quandary, and on the descent it changed from snowing to sunny and back about three times.
