The holidays are here and I must admit it’s been tough to get away from the house to “git sum”, much less sit down to process photos and compliment them with even a few paragraphs of semi-intelligent scribble. Well, this past Sunday I managed to pry myself away for the morning and join the Miller Bros for a few sets of turns that were most decidedly “early-season” in nature, although still a ton of fun.
For several years in a row now Brian and I have lugged our rock skis up to Saint Mary’s Glacier in November/December to poke around a little. More often than not we’ve been pleasantly surprised by what we’ve found in terms of fun terrain and snow quality. The lake normally freezes over by mid-November with the snow following shortly after, filling in the numerous chutes above the lake. Some decent snow early on followed by a few weeks of sun had us confident in our decision to head up there again this year, and we were able to find some fun turns once again. A few ski photos…
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. And if you happen to be bored and stuck inside on some late-December eve this year, try checking out our favorite Christmas film if you somehow haven’t already at some point since 1989.
Cheers and stay safe out there everyone!
