Scary Snow

So we finally got a lot of new snow.  Sarah and I had a great day at Solitude on Monday.  I had been out of town all week so I just wanted to get some turns in.  Sorry, no pics.  Next time I swear!

The problem with this new snow is that it’s dangerous.  I don’t claim to be an expert in the backcountry, so times like this means I stay at home.  It’s always sad when I’m driving to work and there beautiful light and amazing snow, but it’s just a time bomb waiting to happen.  We have a new storm system moving in Thursday night.  This could either make the danger worse by just adding more snow onto the weak layer, or help the weak layer bond. Let’s hope for the latter.  Untill then, check out the Utah Avalanche Center webpage for more information about the avalanche danger.
