Miles are down and legs are getting revamped for raceday- just 5 days now.  Still keeping busy:

Big powder day on May 16.  View out the front door.

Orange doesn't seem to mind.

Gotta make fresh tracks while we can.  B skiing down after skinning to the top.  Over a foot of fresh pow!  If you look closely, you can see a fox frolicking on the slope just above B.

Snow is gone a day later. Here, I am mowing the lawn using my state of the art mule deer mower. Orange supervises.

 We haven't had a good night of sleep in 2 weeks.  Every night between 4 am until 6 am that smoke alarm on the apex starts chirping, signaling a dying backup battery.  It doesn't chirp during the day, so we forget about it, only to chirp again during the night.  Problem is, that vaulted ceiling is 28 feet high.  My solution- combine aid climbing with sketchy overhanging ladder rigging and anything is possible.  I saw this on the Little Giant infomercial with Al Borland.  Belay courtesy of B down on ground level.
