Sweeney managed to book a trip to visit me out in Seattle and experience the skiing, hiking, climbing and whatever else we could squeeze into four days.
Day one, last Friday, involved heading up to Steven’s Pass for a ski tour at Yodelin. There we were introduced to our new friend Claudio, visiting from Switzerland, and together we enjoyed some excellent powder skiing.

The authors of this site together in the West for the first time in years.
We did a few laps up top in a thinly treed, fairly mellow zone, all having a ball. During a short stop for lunch Claudio shared Swiss specialties and we basked in the views. Descending we found a slightly steeper slope and opened up the throttle a bit.
I compiled some footage below. Sweeney’s goPro was unfortunately having some issues.
