We got a great treat. The forecast was calling for maybe 1cm of snow yesterday. Instead we got over 30cm with snow starting early morning and basically snowed all day. Friend Patrick and I decided to head to our favourite powder hunting grounds. It was a challenge getting there because we needed to boot hike for about 30 minutes or so and we were a couple of the first to do the hike. Plenty of snow to step through which is tiring.
Visibility was very marginal at the top and at a few places completely a white-out. But once we got down off the top and into the tree line it was magical with knee deep powder. One of our best days this winter.
