Greetings Tomoaki, Thank you for visiting Shrine Pass and commenting. It is good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Lillian had a wonderful afternoon skiing in the back country. It is such a beautiful setting. There are no lifts for the skiing. We park at the top of Vail pass and then take a ski trail to the west that climbs up to the top of Shrine Pass. Our skis are back country skis with cross country bindings with free heels for walking and skins on the bottoms of the skis for grip so you can climb on the snow and not slip backwards. There is a point along the trail where you could probably flag down a snow mobile for a ride if the was a problem back there. It is nice because you climb to the top (hard work) then slide back down, very easy. I'm glad you liked the pictures. Lillian says "Hi".
