Oh the pleasures of being a parent. My 2 year old brought me the pain last week. I had vomiting and diarrhea in insane quantities, first him and then me. It didn’t stop until Saturday when I took his older brother to Breck. When you make a promise to your kid you have to keep it, no matter what. Oh man was I hurting but I have to keep trying to get this thing done. I changed the plan and decided that the best thing to do was a couple shorter routes. That way if I shit my pants or puked my guts out I could make a quick retreat. I called up Darrel Haggard and made plans for this super fun looking line. At 3000′ vert and about 6 miles this was just what I needed.
I was feeling every foot of vert and farting up a storm. But we finally made it and am I ever glad that we did. The best run of the year for me with 6-8 of winter fresh on top of a nice consolidated base. Ski this line sometime, its a blast.
