I got a GPS watch, mainly to track my running. But I wear it skiing and I'm able to transfer tracks to Google Earth. It's fun..unfortunately the satellite imagery it's tracked on was not shot when snow was on the ground. These were my tracks at Kirkwood yesterday.

The actual GPS application allows me to animate my tracks, get my heart rate, elevation and all kinds of fun stuff.

SNOW POTENTIAL 10 to 17 inches of snowfall (up to 2 feet above 8,500 feet

Tuesday forecast for Kirkwood, fingers crossed. Plan is to leave from there and head to Bozeman for a few weeks. Trying to get as much fun "shredding" as possible before spring slaps us with all it's glory!

^^^^^ohhhh nice

We are on another winter road trip with ultimate destination Bozeman. Our first stop was our usual ski spot, Kirkwood. I had two 12,000 foot days and my legs are feeling it!
I am so so so wanting to jump off this cornice on Fawn Ridge, but the birthdate on my driver's license says "No, don't be silly". Oh to just turn back that darn clock for just a day.

I want to jump in....but alas, I better not.

Today the clouds were rolling in and snow was starting pretty briskly but it's not expected to be a big dump.

Michael at the top of the run we always warm up on. Staying warm was more challenging today compared to yesterday's full on sun.

Decided to post some stoke to Big Mike's thread, though it could fit in "Roger's Pass":

Splitboard and hard boots ^ (Dynafit TLT Mtn's) are awesome tools! I like what he says, "Because 90% of the day is going up and suffering, you hafta enjoy that too. The last 10% is the best part, but you have to enjoy that other 90%, because you won't be coming back, if you don't like that walking."

Heal up soon, Big Mike!

Yeah. . . here's some STOKE!

They did it again. . . hot off BigMtn's SnowReport. . .

"6:00am- I could see the moon and stars on my drive up this morning so it looks like we might start off the day with great visibility."

Is there anything worse than having snow and not being able to see? I think I'd take a drought over this!

Why we love Bozeman for our away-from-California-ski time.
Off to Bridger today...unfortunately no big freshness predicted for a few days...
