@4ster , are you coming to Tahoe? PM please. There is a cold beer, or a nice glass of wine waiting for you. And we'll make a run in Ben's honor.This season was about “Benergy”! My great friend & ski partner Ben passed away unexpectedly last year at the age of 36. His family erected a stone monument at the top of one of our favorite ski runs...
Monument is above my left shoulder

At the end of many days even though I was seriously spent, Ben would drag me up to the top of this bowl to ring the final bell.
I made the hike more than a few times this year in his memory
Ben & I explored a lot of special places over the years
thanks @Mendieta I should be to Tahoe in April sometime. Hoping for some historically huge storms for a late season snowpack.Ok folks, the Mendieta award goes to the picture that captured the popular vote, but also my own:

We'll do this after this season, again. It was soooo lovely to go through all these pictures. I just went through the whole thread again and I couldn't stop smiling.
