Winter's on it's way! Up here in Oregon the leaves are changing, the air seems crisper by the day and the grey clouds are moving in quickly! They say we're in for another La Nina which usually means good things for the Pacific Northwest; is anybody else a Northwest skier?
I've heard is sweltering in the UK right now! Not at all winter like. Speaking of skiing in Scotland, this forum: http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/show … !%29/page2 (not spamming, just cool pictures) has some really amazing pictures of backcountry ski adventures in Wales. Definitely opened my eyes to the ski potential of the Northern UK
I'm more of a "New England Winter Dreader" than a Northwest Skier. I pretty much go into mental hibernation at the first sign the Winter has set in - and emerge from hibernation when Ground Hog Day occurs and I declare February 2 as the beginning of "Mental Spring".
