Poaching Pat’s on a 70 degree day

With Temps in the 70’s I skinned up Pat’s this weekend.
Its not everyday that you change from flip-flops into ski boots.

I skinned up Tornado which had full coverage top to bottom.

The Base was still over 2 feet deep in most places. Signs of spring were starting to show, like this crevasse.

I had a brew at the top, took a pic and then skied down the nice soft corn.

Earning a few turns with Jake

I really wanted to introduce my son to the outdoors early like I was, my dad had me skiing on my own when I was 3 years old.  Jake is 8 months old now and I wanted to get him outside with me again before the snow melted. So I loaded him up in the Kelty Carrier again and skinned up Pats Peak along with Emily.  Emily took some pictures and a little video.  I was super careful not tot catch an edge in the thick corn, so I skied very conservative.  Jake seemed to enjoy the experience, he only cried once when I stopped skiing.
