Taper Session Gone Wild
I'm racing again tomorrow, so today I went out to do a nice little warm up taper session -- just a few short efforts and some skiing to get the legs moving. BUT, as I was skinning along, I stumbled upon an Olympus hidden couloir. I started up it thinking I would turn around at the top of the apron. But when I got to the top of the apron, I couldn't resist. I took my skis off, and booted 1000 feet up the gut. As I got higher, the snow got better, the walls got steeper, and the couloir got narrower. It was beautiful and there was just enough space to ski it.
