>So many consecutive 40-ish degree days can only mean Spring is rearing it’s ugly head and our days of deep and soft are coming to an end. The powder snob in me has mostly learned to clam the hell up when my non skiing comrades start pissing on about the mud, the new snow, the cold, etc, etc, bla bla bla. The hunt is on for those ever dwindling stashes of hold-out freshies and finding them is nearly as fun as burning them down!
After a relatively wind-free winter, those westerly breezes are saving the day by laying in layers of fun those leeward bowls. Here are a few photos of the last 4 days on the Southern tip of the Pioneers.
On Sunday, we remotely triggered a good portion of windslab out of the rim on this bowl and skied through the debris while it was still soft. On the second lap the snow had built up again and we decided to find safer snow. Some time that night it let go again blasted all the way to the bottom. the skiing was still good near the edges on Tuesday
