My inner coach is pushing me hard right now. I am hoping to be at 900 000 ft when I head to Chile, but it will require 4 more substantial days. The last two days I headed out to a nice 1400 foot creamy snow patch and pounded some laps, 12000 ft and then 13000ft today. Right now its simply about the vertical/physical challenge, not about exploration. But I must say I am delightfully surprised at how fun the skiing is, its not powder by any means but it is fast and carveable.
