Last Day of Winter: Still Time to Skate

It was a rough ski week in the Northwest. Torrential rain hit the mountains for several days causing avalanches and floods.

Then it got cold and froze all the soggy snow. Not exactly a great recipe for hitting the slopes — but we do what we can.

SkiZer decided the last day of winter was best spent skate-skiing. The firm snow was melting under a very spring-like sun, turning any ice into a forgiving track at Hyak, along the John Wayne Trail.

The snow was fast and fun. Onto spring skiing!
