mount sproatt

February 5, 2005

I had planned to ski up Sproatt with quite a crew on Sunday, but for whatever reason only Chris Gooliaff and I ended up at the trailhead. No matter, Chris and I were due for a trip down memory lane. Back in the old days, we couldn't find other trip partners to save our lives. Unfortunately I forgot my lunch in the car. Chris kindly split his meager lunch with me, and we pretty much starved. We polished off almost every last morsel of food at 11:30 in a fit of gluttony. The only thing we had for the rest of the day was a box of cough drops; of course they were sugar free. Despite this set back we had a great day on this nice little tour out of Whistler.
