Christmas has come and gone, a combination of nostalgia, board games and a bout of food poisoning sums it up. Luckily my brother came out early so that we could spend some time in the hills together.
Delano Lavigne, (my younger brother) is definitely one of the 'best off-the-couchers' I know. The moment he arrived we embarked on 5 days of none stop skiing and climbing and he relished in the challenge. We climbed Cascade in 2 hours (his 2nd time ice climbing) and skied Forever Young Couloir (his 3rd time ski touring). Maybe one day he will decide to buy his own gear, forget about doing a PHD and become a real mountain man.
