Tetons - Glascading

- arrived back at the ranch from Breckenridge, CO (10 hr drive) at 1:30am.
- slept in. rented some gear for Austin Church.
- hiked up to Amphitheater Lake with Zampini and Austin. amazing day teaching the art of traversing snow.
- i got to teach both of them to glascade. this is a glorified word for "sliding rappidly for 20 minutes down the snow bank you so laboriously kicked steps up for several hours" while steering with your ice axe.
- i also tought the basics of "self-arresting." fun to pass on these skills.
- ate Ramon noodles from the ads of my ice axe (we forgot utensils... again). okay, maybe on purpose because this does look really cool.
