Metaldome Season Opener

As with every year I was more than a little excited to get out skiing once the feeling of summer had given way to fall. The October an early round of cold weather and snow and I was lucky to get out for a tour with some new friends. We headed to Metaldome with the intent of touring up to the north glacier. The snow quality left something to be desired but the incredible weather made for an excellent outing.
