Flurries of email going back and forth. Lots of planning happening.

This is a great article for pre-season:

Considering taking an Avy 1 refresher this season. It’s been 6? years since I took it at Silverton Avalanche school.

Some possible objectives:

Chair Peak
Rainier – Ingraham Direct?
Illumination Rock Ice
Hood South Side
Ouray / Red Mtn Pass / Silverton

While I would live to fly into Albuquerque and drive up to Ouray to climb in the park, I don’t think it’s going to happen this year. Too much time.

This is a more reasonable possibility though:

And of course some good racing on the snowshoes.

Lastly – I cannot believe there aren’t more skimo races in the PNW. It’s like the sport just hasn’t caught on yet. Colorado is booming – but here, nada. Such a bummer.

It’s going to be a good season!
