Gold Creek on Skinny Skis

Today Andrea, I, Jeremy, Sarah, and Tom headed up to Snoqualmie Pass to do a tour around the Gold Creek area on our waxless touring skis. This was Sarah's maiden voyage on her new skis and Andrea and I hadn't brought out the waxless touring skis probably since skiing the Resurrection Trail last winter.
The cold snap that has been lingering over Seattle and the surrounding area made for a crisp, cold trek through the woods. It must have been national "snowshoe on hardpack day" because the trails on the way out were absolutely awash in snowshoers trekking over what to us seemed to be hardpacked ski trail but all seemed to be having fun. As the video below evidences, although we stayed on level terrain much of the day, turns in the freshies were still had by some:
