Maripat and Eb did the "tour with a ranger" and apparently it was interesting. I tried to get Kevin to go too but he said "no." He looked at me when I asked "why?" and said "The powder, dad," in that "are you clueless?" kind of way. The little guy hiked up (and skied down) Devil's Castle 5 times (once from the East side). Powder was still wonderful and we were able to get pretty high on the end of Devil's Castle via traverse without that much effort. Compared to what we found at Solitude it was way more easy. Everyone is now quite the powder hound and very comfortable with the fluffy stuff. The 18 inches of snow made this 4th trip of the season (30th day, 8 days total) a wonderful trip.
Quote of the day. Dad to son who has fallen and requested to get up, "If I help you you are no good." Honestly I think it was an accidental word error, but it shows how the words we use for our children are so important.
