TR: Steep and Deep 12.30.09

(Last Updated On: December 30, 2009)

It’s not just a saying from your favorite sticker of the 80’s, it’s the reality right now in the Crested Butte backcountry. The ski area wasn’t reporting much, but the big orographic zones are working their magic with this storm, and it was deep out there. As in the 10 second face shot deep. Enough talk, here’s the pics… (not a ton, as it’s always tough to get good shots in gladed areas.)

All in all, the deepest day since this one last year, and shades of the epicness that was this day, the best one ever. It’s starting to feel like we might be getting somewhere…
