It has been a hectic season with the Monday through Friday job mixed with training + the weekend gig teaching AIARE courses with Acadia Mountain Guides. However, in the midst of the hustle some fortuitous trips occurred that provided deep snow (Crystal Mountain, WA), steep corn (Mt. Washington, NH), and incredibly aesthetic lines (Estes Park, CO). The best part as always though are the people. From my co-workers at Acadia and Waynflete, my ski partners here on the ice coast, old friends in Washington and new ones in Colorado, I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness. These adventures would be impossible without your generosity, and they wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without your laughter and stories. As always, thanks to Allspeed in Portland, ME, Praxis Skis, Terrain Gym (gear is cool….but strong legs are better!!!), and Acadia Mountain Guides.
