Me and my family


My family and I enjoyed a sunny and very scenic ski to Bankhead with 2-3 cm fresh snow on top of the previous tracksetting. We continued up the Cascade Valley to the Cascade River bridge. Minimal trail breaking in dry snow and not much glide. We were a bit late, so missed the sun in the valley. But we were dressed warm enough for the chilly shade. The big hill descent was one of the slowest I can remember. Saw a few other skiers out enjoying the sparkly day. -23C at the start,-20C back at the trailhead.
