I just got back from guiding a client in Yosemite last week. The guy was a super cool 59 year old who was geared up and ready to rip! So we both put our gnar faces on and got ready to charge around and dominate Yosemite for 7 days.
After putting on my 70 pound pack, I started to feel slightly less gnarly. Then, after discovering that the first 4.5 miles of our trip were on a groomed road, I felt a tiny bit less gnarly. Finally, while staying in the super cushy Glacier Point $120/person/night Hut our last night, I felt even a touch less gnarly than before.
But, we did do some solid skiing one day and we saw some very rowdy (yes, some gnar was actually spotted) ski terrain, not to mention some of the best views of our lives. One of the most amazing aspects of the trip was that it was really warm, so the waterfalls of Yosemite Valley were raging. Check out this video of Yosemite Falls.
The Ostrander Hut is 9 miles in and only costs $30/night. Check out this photo of only a fraction of the awesome terrain there. Tons of mini golf!
Here is me talking about the trip and just generally being sunburned and blown away by the view.
Now watch this video below and try to figure out what you're looking at before it's too obvious.
