    Fortunately I did the next day. Only took about 10 minutes to get someone and he didn't even want the beer

    Depends on the kiddo. My youngest was so small that she was like a rag doll at 3, and same for most of 4. The days are short. We got down to business last spring just after her fifth birthday. Her first time out this year she was kicking ass. Made me stay till the lifts closed. She's still as distractible as a puppy, but the best option for fun is to just give in and indulge it.

    the neighbor to the Three Sisters, obviously not bachy, that other guy.

    PM me if you want more specifics on the line. Hope you understand my cryptic-ness. I try and be low key in public forums so it won't be so easy to pop up on a Google search. Forest Service released a report on the huge flood of visitors to Three Sisters Wilderness and it has a strong correlation to Instagram and geo-tagging

    Agreed! Cascade was worth the trip today. Only minor shark encounters.

    My youngest was 6 when she started, she is 10 now, so a little older. I am pretty sure she thought skiing was code for French fries and cocoa for the first few years. Needless to say, not a lot of skiing when she went but we always had fun and it was good exercise for her fine motor skills, core strength, and confidence.

    If I could recommend anything to maximize time on the snow it would be good mittens and hand warmers, and splurge for lessons if you want a few hours of actual skiing.

    That's what I was thinking from the video when I was trying to identify surroundings, looked like a glimpse of some sisters in there. Also guessing you need a sled to make it happen?

    A sled is pretty much "necessary". I say that in quotes because there are a few badasses that make the whole journey on foot, but it's looooong. A sled cuts out about 6 or 7 miles of access via road. Maybe a little less than that if you skin because you cut out of the road and make a more direct route.

    Honestly I hate sleds to death. They're a pain in the ass, loud, and always break. But at this time in my life I'm trying to get on as much terrain as possible and improve my skillset, so I'm using one to facilitate that. Hopefully in my Jeremy Jones days I will have ditched the sled long ago.

    Would a fat e bike work for approaches?

    I don't hate sleds by any means, I just don't really have access to one. Actually would love to get one due to the amount of terrain it would open up for me. I'm all about getting as many turns in as possible, preferably untapped. Where that's at a resort, touring by foot, or a sled if that's what it takes.

    In any case, great edit. You video editing is legit.

    Oh I hear ya man the terrain a sled has opened up for me is great. I just have a love hate relationship because 1. I suck at riding them and 2. they're a money pit haha. The new ones look so nice but damn they cost as much a car now!

    And thanks for the props I appreciate it!

    Totally get it. People ruin everything and social media as only hastened it, especially in regions that are experiencing insane growth.

    ETA: holler if you want or need a backcountry partner. I have yet to find a group to adventure with locally.
