A pretty significant dump of snow arrived mid-week in the North Cascades. Two feet at Washington Pass is enough to get die-hard skiers out to do laps one a 1km loop!
I took the opportunity to try the new Madshus Nanosonic Intelligrip skis. This is a lot lighter than their Terrasonic IGS, and feels like a real race ski on my feet. Decent grip and glide for a "first day on skis" for the year; no complaints!
