Powder, Powder, Powder!

This weekend was amazing for snow.  I had two full days out skiing and snowboarding.  Sunday was just a resort day, but we skied fresh powder run after run after run at Solitude Mountain Resort.  Saturday was a beautiful day in the back country.  The avalanche danger had come down after a big storm Thursday and Friday, and the sun was out all day.  We did a long tour in Big Cottonwood Canyon, including runs on Tom’s Hill, Little Water Peak and Reynolds Peak.  Although the light wasn’t perfect the whole time, especially closer to noon.  It was still a great day out in the mountains.  It also allowed me to scope out a few areas to do dawn patrols, like I’m hoping to do this week.
