Call me crazy, but I like to hike uphill and ski down. I prefer skins, but one needs snow for that. Current conditions suggest we hike up Pat's Peak and ski down. There might be snow for skinning, but likely will bootpack up and ski down (traction needed). This could change if we get snow, hence Registration required ( https://goo.gl/forms/rB2hMI9q4xC7GVT93 ).
It's a great workout and should be part of your training regiment as you prepare for winter. Exercise, outdoors, skiing. Nothing crazy about that.
