Before I get into the Whitney entries I just wanted to mention that after I decided that I didn't want to go on a multi-night snow camping trip by myself, I turned it into a couple a days trips skiing which was much more fun.
The is the second of two trips. The first one is where I made the Pressure Breathing demo video in one of the lower entries. This time I was using the Randonee skis again (same ones and I might buy them) but struggled to find a boot that fit me. Leif at 5th Season tells me that that issue goes away when you buy the boots as they a fitted to you by using heat molding.
This trip was two weeks later and the snow was now not fun anymore but very sun cupped. On one day I would up snowshoeing instead.
