Shortly after Miles, the fourth and final nobleman, Sir William joined our quest. Will tolerated a slow start to winter in Jackson Hole, and wasn’t ready to call it a winter. To any doubters out there, splitboarders can achieve enlightenment equal to, and possibly greater than skiers.
The RV was getting cramped but the sun stayed out and temperatures were starting to get warm, allowing us to work days to their full extent. After such a strong start, Miles briefly lost the faith and disappointed us all by going heli skiing for a few days (what was he thinking?!). The horde that was Tailgate had dispersed, making it possible for Lee Will and I to achieve full consciousness during hikes.
I'm going up there?
Miles regained the faith when his heli time ran out, and all four of us were united on the skin track once again.
