Took Roo up to Gobblers from Terraces this morning to look for some snow! So cold and windy on the ridge and I tried to descend to Alexander Basin by following some tracks in the snow, but totally lost the trail and just went down the north face of Gobblers which would have been way more fun on skis. I am making some stupid decisions in the mountains lately.

 

Used my extra hour this morning to try and find somewhere that actually felt like November! #gobblersknob #70degreesinSLCwtf

One lap around Liberty Park and then to the dog park w/ Roo. He was dragging today.

Got up at 5am and went up Millcreek Canyon just to wipeout and badly sprain my ankle (I blame new Hokas). As I'm lying on the ground in a puddle of a mud all I could think about was the new ski boots I bought yesterday and think oh noooooo :( I'm on a RICE diet for the next 48 hours.

I couldn't wait anymore!!! Skinned up the Millcreek road in the dark and skied down with Roo. Brought back so many happy puppy memories form last year! Skiing with my dog probably brings me more joy than anything else in my world.  I think this is the first year I have ever skied the road before Thanksgiving - so that's a good sign!

I am so stoked about ski season this year! I'm setting a goal to ski up 100,000 vertical feet this winter, which should be doable considering I've already "run" up 200,000+ feet this year.

At least one of us remembered how to ski...

I couldn't wait any longer again. 2 Alta summer road laps. I think I saw JoshE! Ankle felt better than yesterday and for that I am thrilled! Just bought a wobble board and a bag of marbles, I'm taking this rehab seriously! #99500morefeettogo

Skinned 1.9 Brighton laps with the ladies (3273'). Five times on skis in the past 4 days for a total of 7500 feet of vertical. A great start to the ski season considering the ankle season and general out of shapeness.

Almost a Great Western lap, but it started snowing so hard I couldn't see anything and thought I better get off the mountain because most of it was just grass.

Skinned the turkey this morning at Brighton to kick off the Utah Citizen's SkiMo series. A whopping 9 degrees at the start, but I of course warmed up quickly and wanted to take off all of my clothes. Gorgeous clouds over Timp! I think I'm going to need to up my ski goals for the year since I'm already at 10% of it and it is only Thanksgiving!

Running. Sort of. It has been 4 weeks since the ankle sprain and I finally feel like I can run on it albeit rather precariously.
