Skiing Triple Digits: Days 49-55, Vail and Local Backcountry

On Days 49-55 of my Skiing Triple Digits Quest, I skied a few days at Vail, and I also got outside for a few local backcountry and slackcountry adventures with friends and dogs. Here’s the breakdown:

Day 49: Saturday, January 18
Vail

Cruising through Porcupine Ally on Vail Mountain:

Day 49-Jan 18

Day 50: Sunday, January 19
Vail…and evening hike-ski up Lake Creek

Skied at Vail during the day and then went for a skin up Lake Creek with Kai to catch this beautiful sunset. I skied down the tight trail in the dark–with a headlamp, and with Kai running behind me. Charmed evening adventure.

Vail, Level II Training Day

Another certification training day at Vail. Besides loving skiing, I love the people I meet in the process–like Doug, here, who has also been training for his Pizza (PSIA) Level II cert.
