observations on gear, adventure, and the world

Powerlineish area across from Alta Tour #2: Day 2 on Skis

My med. school brother is getting hitched next week and his bachelor party is a week skiing and climbing.

Today was day one (my day two for the season). We just did a quick lap up near powerline so that he could get some vert in his legs and lungs and shake out the airplane and 1.5 years of med. school.

The kit performed perfectly.

My layering and kit descisions are mostly based on reading:
Andy Sherpa: Light and Fast Mountaineering Part One
SLC Samurai: Backcountry Ski Clothing Systems – What works and what doesn’t
Brian Harder (getstrongergolonger.com): Pretty much everything in his gear tag.

and here’s a little bit on my boots… THE boots.
