February 9, 2022. Joe’s Birthday.

Joe Royer turned 72 today. And that’s all that really matters. We closed out tour 9 skiing four extra vertical runs in Thorpe Creek. Signs of a pattern change next week. Year 45 is rolling.

February 8, 2022. Verdi.

Ten runs today in Talbot Creek. Cold, soft, recrystallized snow and skiing Verdi in the head of Talbot Creek for the first time this season. The best thing about it- skiing all day and not seeing a single person who isn’t associated with Ruby.
