We caught our breath for a few minutes, took some pictures, and then decided which way to go. It was a short run for the effort that we put into the hike but well worth it.
We were beat from the hike and decided we needed a beer and a little break so we skied to the packed lodge and kicked our feet up for a little. We took some more runs and then called it a day around 2 or so.
I LOVED my new skis! They're just awesome!
When I picked them up from REI, I could see them standing in the back next to my old skis and I realized just how much I needed this upgrade! What a difference!
On our way home we stopped in Salida for a late lunch/early dinner. It's a cute little town with lots of art galleries and other shops I wanted to pop in to but we were both tired and hungry so we went right to a restaurant. The food was actually terrible but it filled our bellies enough to get us home.
All in all, it was a fun day. We were a little disappointed with Monarch and thought that we would like it more than we did. I was just happy that I got to use my new skis! :)
