Ski in the backyard. Wrangled up my brother Kelly and avid partner Crispin. Left the house with temps hovering just above the zero mark. A good pace up the freshly groomed slopes of Hyak, kept us warm, and got us over the shoulder to glide out to the base of Mt. Catherine. W meandered up Catherine on a skin track put in earlier in the week. There were a couple of ski tracks, but plenty of room for more fresh tracks. As usual the steep ski descent did not disappoint, and it was nice get good snow, four days after the last storm.
