It was deep alright. Frank, enjoying some time in the White Room.
We had been devoid of fresh snowfall for two weeks. We were teased with a skiff of fluffy white stuff on Thursday morning, and the forecast for snowfall in the near-coming days was not very promising. Imagine our delight when we awoke to 4-inches of fresh on Friday morning. And it snowed all day long and into the night. The 8-inches of storm total for the ski area easily translated to over a foot in the backcountry. It was time to go reap some deep.
I never get tired of this stunning view. And this snow-cloud continued to blanket our western peaks the entire day.
We were greeting by a setting waning moon.
The day couldn’t have been more beautiful.
As we dropped in, we found the snow to be much deeper than expected – always a pleasant surprise. Liz wore a permagrin the whole way down.
Cold smoke, all the way to the valley floor 🙂
