    a yurt, lodge, hut, or chalet trips booked w/ skiing as a focus, but there much more
    no sense in worrying about conditions yet no need to rough it.
    we like to roll unguided and uncatered
    there are meals to cook

    saunas to be stokeified

    tunes to jam

    powdery substances banned by certain athletic orgs that may or may not enhance performances ingested

    selfies don't take themselves

    there are stability assessment and terrain choices to be made

    threw down the lectric coolaid acid test
    sunsets to be savored and cocktail ice to be harvested

    gear to fix

    just desserts to be rolled stuffed and baked and whip creamed 2 b consumed

    there were fruits of others vocational labors to be read

    fuck yeah dr
    shitter wall shenanigans

    and some skill sharpening of serious consequences

    sage don't do dish pit duties in the backseat dawg

    get on top of em
