People have asked me this a lot and to be honest, I'm not sure. Some people suggest that, now that it's May, I should start riding bikes. But, I'm going to keep skiing, especially while the skiing is still good. And, it's still fantastic. I'll probably enjoy a year or so of having not too much of a goal- just doing what I want, when I want. I've wanted to spend some time in the Tetons and maybe even the Sierras and Cascades for quite some time now, but I haven't taken the time to travel much because I didn't want to "miss a good fourteener window". I also have a constant "wish list" that I am always adding to, and checking things off. It's in a constant state of flux which is nice because you always have something you want to ski next. Still, a constantly changing wish list is not the same as a pre-set list or goal. There is something so tangible and satisfying about counting down, not just checking off. I can't say right now that I'll return to a pre-set list or even what that list will be. But, I have some ideas. Either way, I'll be out there skiing- and enjoying every moment I get in the big mountains.

Nice accomplishment!
I also like your wish list....but where is White Rock? That line looks fun...

tandem out of canon city. I always thought I would do solo, but tandems are cheaper and more freefall, so...
