Today was likely the best powder day of the season for Kelly Canyon Ski Resort! Too bad the lifts weren’t open! There were a few powder hunters out on the slopes this evening, but only a single set of tracks east of lift 4.
Heather and I skinned up the Moose drainage to avoid the windy open areas of the ski hill. It was peaceful as we skinned toward the top of lift 2.
A short 30 minutes to the top of the hill where the wind whipped snow across the flats and stung our faces .
So good that we skied till dark before heading down to the lodge where our car was parked! Who would have guessed the best powder day of the season at the ski hill would be April 3rd! As a matter of fact, there is much more snow now than when the resort closed several weeks ago. Full coverage on all runs AND DEEP! Go figure…
