What happened to winter?
Rain on Douglas in December?
Why no snow on the road?
Avy gear? Yeah, probably should.
First ODS run of the season
Most of the group is busy with finals
Three skis, one split board, one Forest.
No lifts on Wednesdays
Storm clouds coming in
Skinning up to the Nest
Super windy chocolate break
Such a beautiful island.
Skied down Most, Raven, Log Jam.
Have to get back for WFR.
Warm van, boots off.
Glad I don’t have to drive
Editor’s note: *”Avy” is short for “avalanche,” Forest Wagner is assistant professor of Outdoor Studies, and “WFR” stands for “Wilderness First Responder.”
