Made it to Winthrop to ski with my friend Lynn. There is a lot of snow here! I left the trailer parked, and drove Hwy 20 over several passes to reach this ski haven.

We did a quick run up “Owl”, a small peak not too far from town, on backcountry skis. The snow was wet, heavy and deep. Luckily turns were not too difficult. We only did one run due to the conditions. A good warm up for the rest of the week.

Upon return to Lynn’s house, while she was off doing some contractor stuff, I jumped into the hot tub with my book. She lives along the Methow river. While I was in the tub, I saw a hawk fly through the trees and an eagle was calling out warnings. A rather glorious top off to the day.

The plan for the rest of the week is to remain on skis as much as possible. Skate, classic, backcountry and downhill. I sure get why people live here.
