Late in the day on January 1st I called Alex and Magali to see if they were interested in trying the S. Ridge of Superior, an easy scramble in the summer, but who knows what in the winter.  We started WAY late, leaving the car at 3:30pm, post-holed for about 90minutes (which would have taken 25 in the summer) – and then were forced to turn around due to a big nasty wind-loaded slope that looked like it could cause us big big problems if it ripped.  All-in-all still a fun day in the hills.

Well there hasn’t been any new snow for a while, but we decided to go check out an early season spot where we could take the pups touring with us.  Let’s just say the dogs had a great day out.
