The Nipple, July 2, 2018

Makisha and Penny joined me to start my 177th consecutive month skiing.

After only 20 minutes we were at the top of a snow patch. Here I saw a little snow cave to explore.

Penny and Makisha try to convince me to try the top side of the snow.

While the quantity of snow is dwindling, the quality of the snow remains smooth and fun to ski.
