Almost Springtime

Longer days, sunshine and great snow add up to skiers' hedonistic karma. Our cold nights have preserved our snow really well; near zero F at night and near 30F for the daily high create nearly perfect powder preservation AND skiing. Elevations between 800 ft to tree line have excellent pow on the western and northern aspects of Near Point and Wolverine Peak. There is some sun effect on the due south aspects, but most of the trails and lines are western aspects.

This evening was comprised of a scrumptious supper, 1300 ft lap with a couple of miles of touring and telemarking (love the tour AND the turn), followed by a neighborhood meeting on the "Far North Bicentennial Park Draft Trail Improvement Plan". More to come on the 'plan'.
