Earning my turns: Hiking up and snowboarding down

Brian at Hyak March 2010It has been a few years since I put on my snowshoes and strapped my snowboard to my back, but thankfully I still remembered how. I drove to Hyak today and hiked to the top twice. All of the chairlifts are gone due to a mudslide that took them out before the ski season, so hiking is the only option. The first time up was nice – only a few drops of rain. But the 2nd time up completely drenched me. It takes about 45 minutes to hike up and only a couple of minutes to ride down, which makes me appreciate each turn that much more. Even in the rain.
