Report from Christmas Day 2020
I went for a long walk in the Tetons on Christmas Day today.
If you walk far enough and high enough there’s still some good snow up there.
Well, honestly, the snow looks good in this video, but it was a touch weird: punchy, grabby, and variable.
You’d get a few good turns then a weird punchy turn that would tweak your ski and knee and really throw ya off.
Which is nice…
I saw a big, bushy red fox this morning, swans in the Snake River in the afternoon, then an enormous herd of elk on the drive home.
This truly is the last of the Old West.
Merry Christmas, snow humans – we appreciate you.
