climbing and skiing!

Windy Peak in the Snake River Range is the first peak in a series of Peaks i would like to ski this year. Several are located in the Snake River Range.

We skied the North Face of Windy Peak on Friday. The skiing, except for the short easy terrain shown in this photo, was very steep, technical and extremely challenging for my ability. This image captures the magnitude of vertical feet found on Windy's north face. Read the trip report and check out the funny vid's at: http://nopiste.blogspot.com/2009/02/windy-peak-snake-river-range.html

I had a great time at the Cody Ice Festival this year. The weather was good. Lots of ice to climb, and as always good friends to hang out with. I did a clinic one day and soloed a few moderate long routes the next day. Good times for sure.
