Oquirrh Powder

Today our search for powder took us west to the Oquirrh Mountains.  I didn't have the courage to show my face in the Wasatch Mountains after my busted forecast and, since it didn't snow much, I wanted to go somewhere where we wouldn't be skiing over tracks in the old snow.

We found a completely "unadulterated" snowpack with a couple of inches of low-density fluff on top of settled powder.  It was our best day of the year.

In addition to great skiing, we had the entire range to ourselves as we didn't see a soul the entire day.

Physically, the tour went well thanks to a new, highly scientific dietary strategy based on Trader Joe's chocolate covered potato chips.

If these don't get you to the top, nothing will.
