Trenching     2009-04-29 07:49:48
I have to admit I had a few chuckles yesterday morning when I saw all of your post-holing and ski trenches below tree line. That looked painful! You‘ll have to get back for Missouri - the North Face has plenty of snow.

Great job, guys!


Beers and apple pie     2011-05-02 08:23:28
Thanks for bringing the Coors Light Ben. It complimented my apple pie quite well. That is one satisfied skier in the 3rd to last pic.

Glad someone could enjoy our trenches Bill. Making them was taxing to say the least! Marc attempted Missouri on Sunday and said he was submarining through that section on the descent too.


Sawatchian effort     2009-04-29 23:17:59
nice one.I hate Sawatchian efforts, way to nab the most annoying duo in Colorado on skis.

next time go with the Banquet beer, I‘ll let this one slide with the Light, at the very least it was Coors.


Nasty post-holing     2009-04-30 06:15:29
That was the worst day I‘ve ever had on skis! Skiing Belford didn‘t really help seeing as how I have to go back and ski it again to get Oxford. *sigh* Nice TR Ben!

Hey one of the cans was Bud heavy! Just don‘t let Carl tell you it was 3.2 from Safeway because he would most definitely be LYING.

I love how you say ”6:00am rolled around”... as if we all slept that night! Some of us didn‘t get 6 hours of beauty sleep!
