Normally, when it snows in April after a long dry spell, one might say “Winter’s back!”. But this year, since it never really snowed, it felt more like winter finally arrived. Thanks to the dry winter combined with the March meltdown, access is tough and the creeks and rivers are all open, so the choices are a bit limited right now. Nevertheless, with up to a foot and a half of new snow in the Irwin zone, I had to ski something.
My friend Alex was already heading up when I talked to her, and thankfully she was willing to wait for me since it seems most everyone is working or out of town right now. There was some slide activity within the new snow, but mostly from the day before, so we kept it pretty conservative. Anyway, on to the photos…
