Highland Lakes, September 10, 2017

Seeing snow in some recent photos that my friends Carl and Ethan posted while camping at Highland Lakes meant that a patchskiing trip was in order. Spence joined Penny and I.

After skiing a few runs on the "Triangle Patch," we took runs on four other patches on the way back down to Upper Highland Lake.

This is the 11th run of the day and the fourth run I did while getting to demo the Blizzard Rustler10, 102 in 180cm. I felt comfortable on this ski right away. It was easy to turn, stable, had good edge hold, and a lot fun to ski. As you can see I am confident that I can easily make a last minute turn if I decide not to pond skim. Thank you Spence.
