Despite my previous post, I actually do like to get out and get a little fresh air from time to time. Zach, Adrian, Mike and I headed out Slate River to check things out. This time, we managed to avoid any driving shenanigans by skipping straight to the sleds. For those of you wondering, trucks are currently coming up about a mile short of Pittsburg.
Conditions were a mixed bag, but generally we’ve got some recycled pow in the backcountry right now. Of greater interest to me were the vast number of slides on what seemed to be every aspect and elevation. So far, this season isn’t shaping up to be one where much steep skiing will get done, at least for a while. Take it easy out there…
