While the days are getting shorter and the nights colder, days in the lift of a ski junkie are really heating up. The mountains are awakening from summer slumber and it's almost time to get up and out there. With the latest system dumping feet of snow in higher Cascadian elevations, we may have jumped the gun getting some early season turns up at Crystal Mountain over the Halloweekend, but damn if it didn't feel good to slide downhill again.
We even met a soul surfer named Eric at the summit, who proceeded to save our day with a screwdriver, a nip of whiskey, and the kind of contagious positivity that draws people like us to the mountain culture year after year.
I'll leave you with a tune, a few grainy phone pictures, and a promise to whip this blog into shape! B EZ.
