wanna be ski bums

We found our sweet spot in the Chugach Range- Saturday we took our tele skis out and explored Manitoba Mountain- we skiied to the summit and were rewarded with gorgeous views and untracked powder for the downhill. There are good and bad things about this. The good is obvious, the bad is that we now wish we could quit our jobs and become ski bums somehow. hmmm.....

the up track, headed toward the summit

i love the ski turns in the background behind b-rad here- ski marks in the snow are beautiful to me :)

we made it to the summit! Just in time to see a skiier drop the ridge behind us!

my favorite ridge behind me- Spirit Walker
