With a little bit of fresh snow, we decided to check out the status of the backcountry. The Anthracites are still easily reachable as it is possible to drive a car far up the Kebler Pass road. However, I suspect this will change the next storm or two. The snow was still quite thin in the Anthracites, with a punchy layer beneath the few inches of fresh, making from some interesting and inconsistent turns. Nevertheless, our pics from backcountry skiing in the Anthracites pics are worth sharing:)

Notice the bird Frank disturbed.
It was a good day of backcountry skiing in the Anthracites and I know there will be more to come!
