While most of us have already packed up the skis for the year, there are 2 AK locals who just got Day 1 of the 10/11 season. No, this isn't some Southern hemisphere brain teaser. Nor is it due to injury or laziness or some other transgression.
Daisy, a.k.a. Noodler II, and Finn got their 1st turns of the season and of their lives over this long holiday weekend. This was despite a low snow year and bears abound.
Finn (age: 249 days) and Touring Partner Daisy (age: 266 days)
Daisy and Finn are starting "the game" early. And like so many of our friends, they made DB Noodler carry their equipment. Not content with the free equipment haul, Daisy and Finn insisted that their respective handlers physically carry them to this high snow field. The young princess sussed the mountainside from the back of her NooNoo, and signaled when an acceptable slope came into view.
The young schussers were unable to verbalize a proper conditions report, but as the video demonstrates: it was the best ski day of Daisy's life.
