Real powder

After yesterday's psuedo-powder day, as forecast today was a real powder day. Another five plus inches on top of yesterday five and colder temperatures meaning drier snow set it up perfectly.

And the other element in the mix? There's nobody here. I didn't get out until 9:45 am and I still got fresh tracks everywhere and even by the time I finished at 1:15 pm there where still plenty of unskied stashes to be found. It was probably the least crowded powder day I've ever seen.

It's hard to say on a day like this what was the best run of the day. The trees to skier's right of Rolex were good enough to try twice so that probably wins, but it was all good. Christmas Tree Bowl (double black diamond) was definitely the most exciting!

Here's today's track. 22,907 vertical ft.
