Ski in the new year

On January 1st I was invited for a 10 mile loop back country ski excursion in Sequoia National Forest. Not having done anything like this since grad school's Wednesday afternoon triathlon training (skiing) at Little Cataraqui Creek, I figured I was up for the challenge. It was a blast! Too hot within the first 10 minutes, many of us had to strip down to our long johns for the day - but the scenery was outstanding and there was almost no one out where we were at all. At the end of the day, exhausted and starving, we stopped at Bear Mountain Pizza in Squaw Valley and stuffed ourselves silly. Delicious.

How fun! It was too cold to ski for our New Year's trip :( It suddenly dropped to - 19 C at the chateau and we had to stay indoors, otherwise that was Itinerant and my plan as well.

It looks like it was amazing!
