Bike 1:22:00  33.0 km (24.1 kph) +450m
Hwy 23N on the Salsa. The bike feels really stable but not super energetic going up hills. Not surprising as it weighs 5 lbs more than my road bike (with a lot of that weight in the wheels/tires). Rain seems to have held off longer than expected so weather was high cloud. Temperatures were around 12 degrees - it is surprising how much the snow on the side of the road cools things down though.
Skate ski 1:02:00  15.0 km (4:08 / km) +450m 3:36 / km
Got the inside scoop that Ryan went out with the Ginzu (and also had a good freeze overnight). Upper main loop was pretty good and did four laps though I was probably an hour too early for the best conditions. No worries - would rather have too hard than too soft...
Backcountry skiing (100eight) 3:30:00  11.0 km (19:05 / km) +1400m 11:40 / km
Mt English with Stuart. It snowed several cm overnight which covered a bit of a crust which disappeared higher up. The snow skied quite well (at least in the trees - a bit of wind effect in the alpine). Was heavy below 1700m on the ski out. We did a lap in the trees and then climbed up to the ridge via a short boot pack. It looks like it would be easy to ski east off the ridge to the glacier and then head up towards either of the Mt English peaks. Also looks like there are heli runs on the west facing slopes from the ridge. Nice to explore up high though it was not as sunny as I expected (high pressure rolled in later).
Backcountry skiing (Megawatt) 2:30:00  11.0 km (13:38 / km) +900m 9:41 / km
A big dump at the resort overnight (including snow in town). Stuart and I headed out to Greely for a few laps. Unfortunately it warmed up quickly and the snow was pretty heavy. We didn't start until noon as Greely Bowl didn't open until 11 or so due to avy control. We did get a fairly untracked run down the bowl and the skiing on the trees was still fun despite the heavy snow. Glad I took the fat skis - might have been the only time I used them this year? We missed the Ripper (planned) and it takes about 25 min to get to the top of the lift. Probably only 10 minutes longer than skiing down and taking the lift up. We skied all the way to the bottom which was a mistake - so slushy and so much suction... it was way better the last two days. Goes to show that an overnight freeze is very useful for spring skiing.
New snow was a bit reactive so didn't climb all the way to the usual start point.
