On Friday, I went for a long walk and a short ski with Pete.
The temperature was -14ºF when we left the car and it stayed that way for the first 2-hours of our climb.
Eventually, we finally broke through the cold air pool and into the warmth above the inversion.
The rest of the climb was gorgeous.
Impressive, vertical, sun-drenched mountains on all sides.
We skied down fun, predictable, wind-pressed snow.
Below 9,000′, the snow turned to powder and we schnoodled our way to the bottom.
By the time we got back to the car the temperatures were much nicer than when we had left it that morning.
