First day on the snow

On Sunday we got out on the snow for the first day this season.  Hillary picked up two pairs of waxless skis at the ski swap on Sat. so we were able to trudge around with Stout for a couple hours.  There was hardly any snow at the ski area base, but after a wet hike up to 2200 ft we were graced with almost a foot of snow that got deeper and started looking like winter around 2700 ft.

Stout comes to save me after a crash on my skinny skis ... and makes it really difficult to get up

Stout was pretty excited to be running around in the snow!
