And I'm doing it again next weekend except then it's technically work.
The highlight of the trip was probably hiking over to Charlie's Bowl to ski it in what were such marginal conditions that I wouldn't have attempted it had I known how bad they were. I use the word "ski" loosely since while it is true that I went down it on my skis, there were very few actual ski-turns made.
That said, I was told that if I got three linked turns off on that run, I was doing spectacularly, since it was so horrible.
The nice part is feeling more confident about my ability to actually pass the marmot training next weekend. Here's hoping that the pain in my legs is gone by then!
