094 - 2010-04-11 Goose Ck

A quick jaunt up the skin track. Turned around at the base of the upper snowfields because I was by myself and and thought the skiing would suck. I was wrong, the few turns I was able to catch were perfect spring conditions. Good run out to the car with Niko, who would reveal her predatory instincts later that day.
Conditions - Real solid going up, but I thought it would be breakable crust. Turned out to be solid, with that light softening on top that makes life worth living.
Ski - K2 Anti-Piste 181 + Scarpa T1 - First time touring on this rig, thought it was a bit slow. The conundrum is it better to sacrifice on the way up for performance on the way down: it depends.
