I can totally relate to that statement - it's my hips that suffer the most. I usually hike with skinned tele skis, and I swear by the end of the ascent I feel like those skis weigh 50lbs a piece.

Thanks for the trip report! There's something very unique about trekking into the woods in the middle of winter with no lifeline other than turning around and trying to head home. Sounds like a good group and a fun trip.
