Story

We arrived at the lake just after sun down and made camp as some snow began to fall. We were pretty exhausted, so we dug the smallest space that would still fit the tent, with plans to widen it later.

The next day we skinned to the far side of the lake, looking for some mellow turns, as one of our group was still fairly new to skiing. 

The last day we woke up early and began to clean up camp. It was already significantly warmer and we were lucky to find a slope to come down on that hadn’t yet been hit by the sun.
