The great thing about preparing the Fall Flake is that it causes me to do some reflection on the previous ski season, the season ahead, and most importantly, the joy I receive from kicking and gliding through the forest on skinny skis. For me, the 2016-17 season was disappointing. My log says I clipped into skis only 40 times, and for the first time in many years I was unable to ski any races, either due to cancellations or my personal schedule. Of course, the great thaw, which brought down the Birkie, was a huge bummer; however, while reviewing my ski log I was also reminded of some of the great days of skiing I did have last season, especially the ones with friends. There was the early season road trip to Ironwood and ABR where we pounded for three days in heavy snow or the crisp, blue-sky day of back-country skiing in early February near Crooked Lake on 10 in of fresh snow that fell the day before. Those are the experiences that put a smile on my face and bring excitement for the upcoming season. Here's hoping for lots of snow and many more happy times with friends on snow!
