Powder Weekend (finally!)

Andrea skiing near Twin Lakes Pass
Its not an exaggeration to say that our powder skiing is a little rusty. We skied powder almost every weekend during the 2010-2011 season, and then didn't ski until the late spring in '11-12. This year we've only recently been getting up in the mountain to ski again, and the temperatures were pushing 60+ degrees last weekend when Andrea's family was here. Slush skiing.

Ahhh, but then sometimes the stars align when hope for powder seems lost and some cold air from the northwest pushes a few feet of classic Utah cold smoke into the Cottonwood Canyons. We had a fantastic weekend up in the mountains - it was COLD, but the snow was light and perfect. Skied in the backcountry Saturday, and then in-bounds at Alta all day on Sunday. Not many photos because we didn't want our hands to freeze off, but here's a few...

We spent the night at the Peruvian Lodge. Amazing!
