Feats of strength for this year's Festivus celebration involved backcountry skiing. The vertical feet climbed for the Festivus celbration was modest, but the quality of the skin tracks meant an exceptional amount of effort was exerted per vertical foot. Nevertheless, there were grins and settled powder to be found.

Finally, lets start conserving powder. Spoon your partners when you can and when you can't, at least ski tight with their tracks. Gang shredding all over the hill is bad form!
There, I feel better now, especially since it just started snowing again.
