After slowly recovering from a stomach flu that caught us both around xmas we headed out yesterday to celebrate my birthday by skiing the well proportioned hill know as "Mount Fuji" at lolo pass (click for map).
Cold conditions since the last big snows and a bit of fresh made for slow trail breaking and excellent powder turns through open slopes and tight forests from the top back to the busy nordic trail where we heard one boy ask "Mommy why are their skis so fat?" as we shuffled along.
|A powder covered summit makes an excellent birthday gift.|
