    Was hoping to do more of something like this, but I think the swe to sun and high temps in the summer limit it to some pretty big hikes in grizzly bear country.
    I skied St. Mary Peak back in June of 2013 when we were visiting my wife's family in Montana. She insisted that we buy bear spray before heading out.

    The Missions are full of grizzlies but not the Roots.
    Maybe I should just go march around myself in June. Hard to hurt yourself then usually. Maybe even bring the old dog.
    No longer stuck.

    Back to the gravel patch. Summer and most of Sept was too hot for turns but finally some single digit (Celcius) overnight low temps brought the sand/gravel ski stoke back up. Recent rains groomed the gravel, turns were sublime. Tested out the new ski drag system for steeper bootpacks and some recent ski boot liner mods. Stoked to bring 'em both into some authentic snow tomorrow. Recent precip brought up to 30cms of fresh up on our local glacier. Fingers crossed for some real, authentic Sept. pow turns. It doesn't happen every year.

    Master of mediocrity.

    I headed out on a recon mission with Penny and Zooey after an early season storm dropped a few inches of snow in the mountains. We headed over to the beautiful and reliable east ridge of The Nipple. The snow we found was next season's fresh dust on last season's leftover crust.

    As we were headed up, Powdork was heading back down with his crew and he took this photo of me bootpacking up.

    I enjoyed good snow and great company while starting my 192nd consecutive month skiing.
