Ice and snow / by Eric Dacus

The ice was in this weekend, and despite highs in the upper 40’s here in the valley, Provo Canyon’s north wall was cold and empty of people. Getting to lead two of the four pitches off the ground was fantastic. One was a challenging lead for me, the other was the easy kind of fun. Even got some bushwack/choss’ineering in between pitches, which is even more ‘fun’ to descend.

Polly was able to ski again! On a break from the Alta clinic on Sunday, and it was so good to see her grinning and turning. Its been a long four months, and now recovery has returned to activity.

Alta turns

After getting to ski with Polly for a few runs, met up with some friends and skied out of Alta to Rocky Point, skied down, then booted back up to Patsy Marley and back down into the resort.
