|Atmospheric Turns Down Hyalite Peak|
Winter hasn't been a complete bust and despite working too much, I have managed to get in many fun days of backcountry skiing. Several storms and good timing on my part allowed me to get in three excellent days in Hyalite Canyon in a short period of time - two tours up Hyalite Peak and one up Blackmore Peak. Each time, I was able to make it up there shortly after the storm and the weather stayed cold. Pair that with good partners and little wind so it ended up being three memorable days in the mountains. I am really lucky.

It's been a crazy winter weather-wise with variable snow conditions. The key to surviving is to have varied interests and being willing to get outside regardless of what the weather is doing. Be flexible and remember, Mother Nature always has the last say. I am ready for whatever comes our way. Bring it on!
