Winter 2016-17 Skiing/Ice-climbing road trip

So, I decided to do something I have always wanted to do and that is, a skiing (and ice-climbing road trip!) I am not sure if I feel a sense of irony that I am doing this as a skier who skis on one ski, versus my two-legged regular skiing days before my accident. In some ways, I can’t cover as much ground as I used to (e.g. in the back or side-country). On the other hand, I guess I am forging new ground as an adaptive skier doing this on m own. I am in the middle of it right now, but the itinerary has been/is to drive from Cambridge, MA to…

  • Canmore, Alberta (Sunshine Village and Lake Louise)
  • Revelstoke, British Columbia (maybe day trip to Kicking Horse, Golden, BC)
  • Whistler, British Columbia
  • Sun Valley, Idaho
  • Salt Lake City, Utah (Alta, Snowbird, maybe Park City and others)
  • Jackson Hole, Wyoming
  • Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado
  • Telluride, Colorado
  • Taos, New Mexico

…then back to Cambridge, MA because I need to travel to Martinique at the end of January. Then off to Chamonix in February, and Chile in August.
