May Ski

I should have done this years ago, but it finally struck at the right moment. I want to ski every month this year. Technically, I started in November, but I’m going for a clean January to December sweep. Granted, those winter months weren’t much of a challenge, but now that it’s May it takes a little more effort.

We knocked off May on the 3rd above Bear Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Nice and early in the month. I hope to be as diligent in the months to come. It was my first time to ski Dead Elk Couloir and it was OK. There were a few patches of clear untouched snow even after a few of my crew had skied down before me. But there was also a little snow slide that mucked up some of the narrow chute of the couloir. We survived.

Anybody else going after skiing every month of the year? Where’s your May Ski?
