Trip Report

I waited 3 years to finally accomplish what TJ, Megan and I did on Saturday, April 18 2009 - summit Mount Hector. Truthfully, on hindsight, it's for the best that it took me this long. The ski down was much more pleasurable now that I'm more comfortable skiing powder. I'm not nearly as good a skier as TJ or Megs but I can enjoy myself rather than just do the 'survivor skiing' thing.
