h on the hill

H's work quieted down enough that he was able to take the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off.  After doing the last minute grocery shopping (he reported that the store was not crowded at 7 a.m. and all the staff were very friendly and helpful), he took his telemark skis up to Alta.  The sparsely-populated trails were about the same as it had been on Sunday (due to no new snow) but the visibility was much, much better (due to no fog).

Even the EBT was pretty on Wednesday

He and his tele skis went back up again on Thanksgiving as I begged off after having run my little turkey trot.  Again: no new snow, scarcely any skiers and bright, gorgeous blue skies.  His legs were pretty tired by Thursday night after two consecutive days on those teles and he announced that he would be back on alpine skis for whatever skiing we did over the long weekend.  Fair enough.
