Was making 2 turn first track runs down off-the-map blacks yesterday...snow was great, knee deep fluff and filled-in...one of my best days of the year with a mix of whiteout and bluebird

I am a keen explorer and tend to get off of the 'beaten track' often than not! Hence my completing a black, before I even realised, took a friend to 'aware' me afterwards...

Steeps don't bother me, never have. I am of the belief that if you have your 'linking' down what is there to fear? This is probably why it didn't register...

I should be a little more conscious of where I am heading, then again, I enjoy off-piste, so adventure is ensured - until you've exhausted all options... doubtful, where I am (still finding areas that didn't exist beforehand, in my reality)

Steeps! *pumps fist*
