Why? Why climb up a mountain to ski down? I've struggled with the answer to that for years. At one point I would've said it was for the views, or the sight of the sunrise. But after further contemplation, the best answer I have is the people you share the experience with. When ski mountaineering, you are dependent on your partners and your team. Going out for a long day in the mountains makes you vulnerable to the shared experience. It allows us to let down our walls and let those people into our hearts and minds like few other activities in life can. I'm so grateful to all the partners I've shared a bootpack, skin track or rope with. @acpictures @fitzcahall and @airandrice on a super fun day in Hogum last week! Thank you! 🏽
