The first day we skied 20 miles to Borealis Cabin where it was -38F. Freakin' Cold!! Thankfully it warmed up and we were in the -20F range for a couple of days, then -10F for the last couple of days. Had some stiff winds from Caribou Bluff to Colorado Creek, where the windswept landscape reminded me of Antarctic skiing days. Saw tons of wolf, caribou and moose tracks, but the only live animals we saw were ptarmigan and rabbits. and I am 90% sure - in my frozen, tired, sore, hungry state on the first night, in the dark - I saw a wolverine. A solid 90%.
Even before it was over, we knew we were having fun (Class A), and by the time we got to the car, we were already nostalgic for the peace and quiet of snowy mountain ski trails.
