It snowed last weekend for the first time in a long, long time. Sure, it was only about 8″, but it felt more like 8′ considering the way we’ve been deprived of snowfall this season in the Crested Butte area. Brittany and I headed out to the Kebler Pass area, where amazingly people are still driving, to check things out. Beautiful light on a beautiful day:
It will take a lot for avalanche conditions to improve this year in Colorado and Utah, so keep it mellow in the backcountry this year, ski the resorts, and travel to places with a better snowpack. Do a little snow dance- it sounds like we might have a better chance at snow in the near future.
