New Year's Day Dawn Patrol
In keeping with a tradition of sorts, I managed to rally for a dawn patrol session up on Hood to start the new year right. Conditions on Hood are exceptionally good right now, cold snow and cold temps. I could rant about the existing skin tracks, but in an effort to greet the new year right, I will save my skin track critique for another day.
Thermometer at the trailhead read a paltry 5 degrees Farenheit. Skiing was boot top blower, and the snowpack measured in at 235cm (92 inches) around the 5,600-foot level. What a great way to start the year. Here are a few shots of the day.
If you wont comment on the skin track quality, I will...I've seen some truly crummy placed skin tracks this year. Kind of wonder what these people are thinking.
