Pow Days in May… You don’t want to wait too late! But today was truly blower. We headed up from the car around 7 am and found ourselves ready to ski around 8:30 am and we could’t have been happier. We chose a gully a little bit before the Mace hut and Nate and Aja set out breaking trail to just a bit above treeline and we decided to drop from there.
The skiing was just too good not to re use our skin track and go take another lap on the same aspect. We both agreed that our second lap was even better than the first as it had a slightly more north facing aspect to it.
Until the next storm that may have been the powder window. We are all looking forward to the actual start of ski mountaineering season. Should be soon! Or it may just keep snowing and giving us pow days.
