Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Kevin Hammonds
Finally!  A decent day of backcountry skiing.  In fact, it was probably my best day of the year as I missed the last decent run of powder thanks to a balky back.  Conditions were quite good above 9000 feet and not bad below that, although it got a tad stiff at elevations that were in the melting band during the snowfall late yesterday and overnight.  Even south aspects skied well thanks to the persistent cloud cover.   Most of our turns were at elevations above 8500 feet.

Looks like about 23" now at Alta-Collins since yesterday afternoon.  I'd say more like 10-12" where we were today, but that was enough given the right-side-up density profile.
