    Great time at Sibolas had by all. Including the mozzies. Great to be back at such a sweet area after so long. Snow conditions were superb and the weather forecast erred to our advantage.

    But, flashing back to the ski day with Brad at Wesach I'd like to share some photos of a great day first. Back at the end of June so not current but whatev.

    Lucky enough, a few days after my Wesach day I got to ski Sibolas with the usual suspects. But shit damn, it'd been a while since I skied here with these folks. Thinking 10 to 15 years. Great to share this with Vivian, and introduce her properly to L man and Jim, Keith and Heather.

    Vivian on first bowl, first turns in the Sweeney area. Last time I took a girl here, she (a boarder) froze midway down the slope. My (perhaps 12 year old) son, ripped to the bottom of the slope, out of sight because it rolls over steeply (the reason, of course, boarder girl stopped and froze in the first place). So dilemma and high drama occurs where I have to leave her crying and perched on a 35 degree firm slope (where, for sure she would have slipped to the bottom of if not on her snowboard edge....), and go ensure my kid was ok... Needless to say, no one died and the girl and I are not together anymore.

    This trip was way more fun.

    Vivian on the 2nd last pitch. Last pitch was the waterfall and it was superb, with a downclimb into it. Whole team slayed it
