First turns of the winter at Rainier this weekend, hot dang what a great way to open the season!! We missed the first big storm of the winter last week while we were in Mexico, and weren’t sure what to expect in term of snow conditions... what a nice surprise to find plenty of powder in the gullies!

Snow coverage was AMAZING for early season. On the drive out, we talked about trying to avoid rocky areas so we didn’t gouge our skis in the early season snow, but realized on our first run down that we had nothing to worry about. We only did two laps, since we’re reaallllly out of ski shape (time to start working on the cardio and the squats again!) but it was an awesome way to kick off the ski season :)
