"The Country does not disappoint!" We've been saying it for years and once again it held true. There's something about starting in the Valley that make these peaks feel special. Andy, Noah, Lars, Teague, Tom and I all started up Lone from Alpine. I hadn't skied the NE before and neither had Teague or Tom so we were psyched to be heading that way.
The following shots should tell the story. In case it's not obvious, It was sick.
