>The snow came late and all at once to the Southern tip of the Pioneer Mountains, disappointing to one who closely watches the exploits of you skiers sussing out the avalanche conditions and then tearing it up on the east side of the state. That’s not to say I havn’t been out but there’s a certain satisfaction derived from getting easy turns on “local” turf.
The shots below were taken sunday on a tramp to ‘South Paw’ above Blizzard mountain ski hill. The hike from the road to the top takes about 45 minutes and although the terrain isn’t big, it’s easy to reach and there are untracked miles of it.
South Paw; so nice, you’ll hit it twice.
