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.

Breeze In?

Glad I don’t have to drive

Nap time.

Editor’s note: *”Avy” is short for “avalanche,” Forest Wagner is assistant professor of Outdoor Studies, and “WFR” stands for “Wilderness First Responder.”
