Right on the heels of the best week ever we got another early week storm dropping 2+ feet in the Cottonwoods. Unreal. The latest refresher led to dawn patrols on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. By the weekend the warm temperatures and high winds had done a number on the snow. We went out for a short tour with the intentions of skiing something new on Saturday, then took Sunday off to rest for the next storm. Another 20+ inches in the forecast for tomorrow... we are so spoiled this season.
Tuesday February 28
Solo powder laps in Mill D. Went fast and just skied as much as I could before work. Got in 4 laps of absolute hero snow and took a single photo...
Wednesday March 1
Flagstaff laps with Andrea. Great snow once again but too cold to take many pictures. Cold is good - it keeps the snow soft.
Friday March 3
Solo Scottie's Bowl with soft turns and a rejuvenating sunrise.
Saturday March 4
Finally checked God's Lawnmower off our list. What a name for a ski run / giant avalanche path. Its the obvious one I marked on the first photo below. Snow was alright but the winds were howling and the sun had done damage to anything not facing directly north. A good adventure outing!
Sunday March 5
First day off from skiing on a weekend since Thanksgiving. Super windy and the snowpack needs a fresh coat of white. I actually went running, which has been very uncommon on weekends this season, and that says everything about how relentlessly amazing the skiing has been.
