This prolonged high pressure has been both a blessing and a curse. The warm sunny days have somewhat stabilized our snowpack and have brought spring cheer to the town. But, at the same time, the snow that has fallen the last few weeks has been quickly, and sadly, melting away at an alarming rate. It seems as though winter came late and spring is coming early. With that being said, now is the time for us to get out and enjoy what little snow we do have, because it might not be here for much longer. In hopes of finding corn, Frank, Sydney, and I decided to check out the south-facing Spoon on Gothic Mountain.
Despite the snow being slightly heinous for bootpacking, we enjoyed good snow on a good line. While the snow on the spoon was not mature corn, warm temperatures are causing the snow to transition quickly. Still, the line was thin in places, especially for March. Thanks to Sydney and Frank for a fantastic day!
