Easter Backcountry Skiing

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Maj Rob Marshall, Capt Mark Uberuaga, and Capt Danny Franz spent Easter morning climbing among the Sangre de Cristo mountains above Taos Ski Valley, NM.  These Airmen have been active members of the USAF 7 Summits Challenge and came together for a weekend of skiing and adventure in the high mountains.  Naturally this sort of fun is also an excellent physical exercise, given the 10,000-12,500ft range they were hiking/skiing in and a great way to stay in shape for Everest in 2013.  GO AIR FORCE!
