What, A Thaw??

Yep. Combination of warm temps and lots of snow today had me out on the trail to enjoy it before it disappears in the next few days. Thanks to MDL I got a bag full of waxes for all conditions. I applied the wax for “neige humide” and took off. The first time in my life I’ve skied in shorts. Great time.

Also, from today– The VMI Class of ’14 pressing up the hill of… snow??

Photographed in the hometown of Valentine Cook Saunders, Class of 1842, and actually very close to his final resting place.
