The skiing in central Oregon has been incredible this last week with over 44 inches of new snow in the last five days and cold temps to boot. This is the kind of winter conditions we dream about!

Peter Grubb Hut


It wasn't the original plan but it ended up being a pretty near perfect three days out in the Tahoe backcountry. Staying in the hut made it so much easier to access new terrain and we got all the skiing and skining our early season legs could take. The fresh snow was almost too deep, lots of wallowing involved, but what an awesome complaint. I'm such a big fan of hut camping during the winter months, that big wood stove and a place out of the weather makes all the difference between enjoying vs enduring.

Just us and some farm animals (nearby duck, cat and chickens not pictured) in the hay barn. Using the tractor wheel as a tripod, right before we jet off to celebrate my Grandpa & Grandma's 60th wedding anniversary. #lifeinthefastlane
