With over a week of being pummeled by various storm cycles, Frank and I were eager to get out and ski some fresh powder. But, we were a bit tentative about what the new snow had done to the snowpack. We decided to “play it safe” and to a place we often tend to steer away from – the Anthracites.
This is why we don’t tend to go to the Anthracites. We counted 19 sleds at the trailhead- an all time record for us.
Nevertheless, we found some good powder stashes. Even the skin track was enjoyable. We didn’t see a single person.
I love snow on trees.
We had some good turns and some fresh tracks, but the crowded nature of the Anthracites left us pondering about some different terrain to ski the next day…. More powder days to come!
