White Dreams

Published on January 5, 2010 by

During summer time, I day dream of snow on the order of once per day. Through fall, my white dreams increase… and often penetrate my night… one night I became stranded in Williams, AZ as avalanches crashed down Bill Williams Mountain! This morning I was climbing a ridge that separated two illuminated snow highways… before Dara said “you are going to be late for work”…
Sometimes my dreams become reality, and my reality becomes a dream… and after working only 2 days out of the last 11, I am feeling dreamy… My vacation started with a Christmas ski to a cabin. Blair hosted the cabin shinding, but first we had to get some food there before the Christmas party.

Here is Blair breaking trail while carrying a duck and potatoes.

Here’s Nahno on Christmas morning, getting stoked for the cabin trip.

Eight of us skied the 1.5 miles to the cabin. I carried the Marks-Marino gear, while Dara carried Nahno. We all settled into the cabin, cranked the wood stove, and fired up the oven for a Christmas duck.

Then everyone went skiing! McKenna was getting tired so I loaded her up in the baby-carry backpack and we started splitboard-skinning up the hill behind the cabin. She fell asleep pretty quick and even slept through her first powder turns (outside the womb).

Yep, I took McKenna on a splitboard run down this beautiful little bristlecone meadow. Those are our tracks on picture left.

The rest of the day we soaked in the views and prepared dinner.

We had a wonderful team effort of cooking, serving, and cleaning. The next morning I got in a quick run with Sazi dog.

…and my New Years Dream… to be a phat and happy skier!
