Good day in the backcountry today. Avalanche danger was high, but we found some "safe" terrain. I nearly froze to death -- again -- waiting at the top of Reynolds for splitboarder Jon to get his stuff together. (Although I must admit that I'm glad to finally have an enthusiastic backcountry partner.) Once he got his board put together, the bindings fastened on the board with micro-pins, his skins off, his boots in his bindings, his poles collapsed, his goggles on and yada yada yada, he did get some nice turns in.
There was some deep snow today. I really really wish I had put the goggles in my pack and not just in the car.
We made it out in a blizzard and the dark.
