Mixing it up

Summer and winter are battling it out... above 8500 feet there is still lots of snow, but we are in full spring/summer mode below that elevation. 

We got out to ski on Saturday but it was our first "early bail" of the entire season - conditions just weren't good: first overnight re-freeze of the week followed by high winds and clouds. Sunday was much better - I skied the Seagull Couloir on Mt Tuscarora for the first time. Very nice chute. It's the obvious line in the photo below.

To mix things up a bit, we headed to Millcreek Canyon for a pair of hikes this week. The obvious ones, Grandeur and Aire. Everything is just lush and green and beautiful right now. We (even Jake!) are enjoying the transition between seasons.
