I wrote in my last post that March was tough. It was a really busy month for me at work, and then on March 10, one of our friends, Robson Gmoser, died in an avalanche. We hadn't known him for long but he was such a warm person that we really felt like we'd lost a good friend.

The one high point of April was our trip to Fairy Meadow. I wasn't sure how I would feel spending time in the backcountry after what happened in March but that joy and wonder that I've always felt in the mountains is still there. I skied 8 days in a row, most days covering more than 20 kilometers with 2000 meters of elevation gain.
I'm hoping May will be a better month and that I'll be able to post weekly again. Thank you for continuing to read!
