Jon O called last night and wanted to ski the pass. When the avy site says skiers are setting off slides on approach, I turn cautious! I suggested the ‘backside’ of Kelly Mt, and Jon, having never skied back there, agreed.
We found a winter wonderland!!! Deep new powder, snow-wrapped trees and no tracks ahead of us!!
We bumped into Dean and Heather (yes…. Heather putting on ski gear but turning blue from the cold!) in the Kelly lower lot. They know you make turns while the snow flies!!!
Traversing across we bumped a muley buck who bounded away in the aspens and found the most pristine winter wonderland all around us. The powder turns on Tele Hill were sublime; so much so we took three laps! We skinned back up on the last lap with Eric L after he floated past us with a non-stop grin!
Merry Christmas one and all!!
