After last Saturday’s storm, we received quite a bit of wind here in the Crested Butte area, making for some tricky avalanche conditions which are starting to improve with our sunny weather, and of course finding the right aspects to ski has been a challenge as well. The heavily treed Pillow Palace seemed like a good sheltered choice, and we actually found some good skiing up higher as well. The Pillow Palace is an interesting ski, as you constantly traverse one way or the other looking for fun pillows to play on, skiing short pitches along the way. I know some people are over the POV thing, but it’s really the best way to document this kind of treed terrain. The few photos I did get are in a slideshow at the start of the POV. Hope you like it!
