Happy Independence Day! For the holiday, I set off on a solo ski mission to Mirkwood. On the morning commute up to the mountain over the last few days, I noticed that there was still some snow lingering up in Mirkwood Basin. It’s not every season that you can still ski in July, so I figured I would take advantage of it and go check it out. I can’t think of a better day to get some summer turns than on the 4th of July.
