Default Checking on the.......

.......Hike in skiing for this spring. Last year it wasn't worth the hike in so Al my ski buddy asked me to give it a check out to see if ths year will be a little better. We're only at about a 73% of average snow fall in this area this year. Two of are five favorite chutes are looking like a no go this year still. Two should be good till at least mid June hopefully and the third will be iffy after mid to late May. So if your feeling "Tuff" it's only about 7 miles in to where we start making laps. Usually skin up at first light and ski till 1:30 - 2:00 when the avalanche danger starts.
















Now you just have to figure out how to get where you need to be for this kind of fun!

Nice pictures, but I am done with all the back country skiing I ever want to do. It is so much easier to just take a lift! It is snowing like crazy here now, how is it up in your area?

Default Weekend in Vail

We just spent the weekend skiing Vail and it was great! All runs were untracked Saturday morning and the powder in the trees and back bowls was awesome, even though it was wetter than the usual Colorado gold. Sunday brought warmth and Sunshine to help illuminate all the stashes. Beautiful!

Yea, Turbo I'm just a frisky young pup of 61. Still run the younger yet crowd into the ground though.
