More snow (big sigh), more weather down time (wah!). But, thanks to pilot Sluggo and the guides, we were able to get out at 11 a.m. in heavy snowfall; 8 a.m. is normal departure. We skied untracked lines in 14 inches (35 cm) fresh snow until dark: Pleasure Center, Shotgun and Squarehead, 12,100 ft vertical by my count.
Slough management was key today as the fresh snow was moving a bit. There were sloughs that could knock a man down, but skiing out of them or skiing faster than the sloughs were good enough solutions to safely keep us in powder paradise.
