About Me

My photo
I like being outside if it's nice out. This includes mountain biking, trail running, sailing, climbing, skiing and much more. If you're going on a fun adventure, let me know!

Steep Creek

Sarah, Sarah, Paul, Justin, Jeff and I headed up to Steep Creek on the Duffey Lake Road to enjoy some great skiing during a period of sunny weather and low avalanche hazard. Lots of skiing for little slogging, a little bit different than some of my trips.
