Good snow day! We hiked at Waterhouse. The conditions were really great...fun in the powder!
The climb was a little grueling for me..I wouldn't recommend climbing up to 9200 feet with bronchitis..it beats you up...but it was so worth it...the guys were patient and gave me a couple breaks on the way up(very nice of them as I know they were itching to get to the top and ski). It was blowing pretty good up top, but we found some shelter in the tress and managed to get our skins off and get organized for the ski down. I so love that weightless feeling you get when the snow is like this.
Bill and I had a little break and some lunch and then broke some new trail right from the house. It was snowing the whole day here..should make for a good day tomorrow too. We might go back to Kirkwood for the morning and then try Waterhouse again in the afternoon.
Nice to talk to my parents last night and know they are having a good visit with Gerry and Lorne and the twins..what a nice surprise for them!
