Ridiculously good out there

The ongoing wind and the sketch avalanche conditions have made this an interesting season, to say the least. Sometimes, though, God just sends us a big old pile of powder, as if to say "stick it out, you know the great days make it so worth it."


We had quite a bit of new snow last night... the skin track was knee deep, with 325 cm at the snow stake. There was 311 cm when I was up there on Tuesday. It wasn't the lightest snow we've ever had but it was quite skiable and neither the wind nor the snowmobiles had torn it up. There were a lot of sluffs everywhere, a few crowns but mostly on very steep rocky terrain with thin snow.

Brett and I had a ball. What a day to catch it!
