Turns All Year Months 25 & 26

The snowpack in the PNW is pretty dismal. As I am writing this, it's 50-degrees and sunny on a warm January day. While the rest of the country is complaining about the "Polar Vortex", we are happily walking around in t-shirts and searching our homes for those sunglasses we know we put somewhere.

October marked my 2-year anniversary for TAY, wherein participants ski (or board) at least one day a month. Everyone has their own personal credo for what counts as a day of skiing, but for me if I've got skis on my feet for more than an hour (going up for down), it counts.

To round out the year, I found myself up north near Mt. Baker for 3 days in November, and then in-bounds at Crystal and Steven's for December, after starting off the month with a VERY COLD adventure to Jim Hill Mountain. Here are a few of my favorite photos:
