Pitch Black Powder

I can't sleep
I punch my pillow and roll over onto my stomach in hopes of getting a few more hours of sleep before heading down to the shop.

I give up.
I grab my pack, my dog and my skins and head out to the mountain.
We get the first spot at the K1.
Amidst the pitch black darkness and fresh snow, we arrive at the top of Skye Peak.
With dawn still far into the future, we continue to Killington Peak.
It is still pitch black.
But there is still only one set of tracks on perfectly untracked snow: ours
We arrive at our destination, partake of our puppy treats and remove our skins.
And treated ourseves to a field of freshies...and another...and another...and another...
We did try to share.
But we took it all!!
