When you think spring skiing, most think warm temperatures, slushy snow and sitting on the patio with a beer. Skiing is secondary. But not here.
It is officially spring here and spring means more great soft snow. We may get a day or two of spring skiing, but generally not. When you get 4 thousand vertical you can get a little of everything. It can be winter skiing at the top with nice fluffy snow, then you may go through a hard packed section and then soft spring skiing at the bottom. You certainly need to be prepared for a little of everything this time of the year. And if you know where to go, it can be amazing until the end which is April 17th this season.
Along with friend Patrick we continue to explore in our area and continue to find some great powder. It seems even on a day when there is no new snow, wind sometimes helps and blows in the snow and covers up the previous days tracks.
Lately the top and middle sections have been outstanding with a few challenges as we get closer to the bottom when the temperature changes have either created a crust over night or made it pretty heavy. But as long as the knees hang in there, we will continue to do what we are doing. Video is from March 20 and as you see it was pretty sweet.
