12 Glory Laps in 12 Hours

12 Glory Laps in 12 Hours
Last February 20th, I hiked and skied 12 laps on Mt. Glory. 19,638 feet climbed with skis on my back and 19,638 feet skied to raise money for Camp To Belong. It's snowing again and I'm ready for the 2nd edition! Click the logo for more info and ways to support camp!

Twas the Day Before Thanksgiving

And I almost got blown off the top of Glory... almost...
But I had to hurry back and prepare to prepare the turkey preparations.

And done. 
Without much of a snowpack, a Table ascent wasn't looking good so we took a nordic tour up the south fork of Teton Canyon.
No babies.

And so begins another Glory-ous year...

6:30 am Friday, November 20, 2015. The Tetons received +12" of new snow over the previous 24 hours and the masses of hardy souls from both sides of the range showed up early to get pre-work turns.
Nobody had pushed through the waist-deep snow that had settled on the upper third of the route up to the summit so I churned my way through to the top where the wind was ripping along at +40 mph.

The kids, warm and cozy on a 3 degree morning.

3 laps on Glory today...
...and home to a cozy, christmasy, mountain cabin.
