Bill and I drove to the "trailhead" for San Antonio Hot Springs Thursday after dinner. It's a five mile ski in along an undulating road. I just got a new 10.5mm lens and only wanted to take one lens so...
All geared up and ready to go. A relatively warm night for a ski. But a set of tire tracks in the snow (the gate wasn't locked shut and some brave soul had driven all the way to the springs) made for slow skiing
At the hot springs. I know, it doesn't look like much here. It took us two hours to ski in. We setup camp in the valley floor, hiked up hill to the springs and we got into the springs around 10:30pm. We soaked for about 90 minutes.
We slept in until 7:15am. The overnight low was around 5 degrees.
Afer packing up camp we hit the springs for another soak before skiing out later that morning
This tree was flocked with ice that formed from the steam of the springs
We had the place to ourselves
Down near the valley floor and river
Last winter when Bill, Tom and I skied in, the old bridge was gone and this bridge didn't exist.
Skiing out. It took us 1.5 hours to ski out. Having our ski tracks from the previous night helped a great deal.
