Emily and I headed into the Lakes Basin last weekend to ski Eagle Cap and check out the area. Emily spent a lot of time in the area last summer for work and loved it. I had never been out that way so I was excited to see some new country.
It was a long, flat approach, but having Eagle Cap in your face the whole way helps melt the miles.

The heat shut us down in the afternoon. Good excuse to kick back and relax.
