I have been out on a number of good backcountry tours and got the year off to a good start with Tim and Mike on New Year's Day. They guided me around all day on this route.
Surprisingly, the best snow of the day was the exit out from Cardiff peak. All in all a fantastic way to begin the new year. Looking forward to more to come. Tanner's work and school schedule will now allow some touring with his dad, so it will just get better.
