Last week I went skiing by myself at Bohart Ski Ranch outside Bozeman. I had grand plans of skiing every morning while we were here. Unfortunately I forgot that skiing at sea level (or close to it) in Seattle is very different than skiing at 6,000 ft in Montana. Unfortunately I had to stop every minute or so and my lungs were hating me. Never the less, it was a lot of fun.

After such a rough first trip it wasn’t till today that I made it back. Today Mark came with me and we were treated to beautiful weather, empty trails, and fresh snow. Here are a few shots from the day.

Snow!

Yesterday we got our first chance to see some REAL snow. Scott and his friend Kristen picked us up on Mercer Island and we all drove up to Snoqualmie Pass to do some skate skiing. Dorothy and Troy joined us a bit later and we all got to play in the snow.
It was great to be out, though I was woefully out of shape for this.

That’s all for now!
