SMG guide extraordinaire @drewdaly doing some all-important early season conditions recon. What’s the verdict Drew? #sawtooths
Taking in a beautiful morning at the #williamspeakhut during our annual woodcut. Over 2’ of snow on the ground made it a bit more challenging than normal but got us fired up to get out on skis!
