This post is part of a Throwback Thursday series featuring trip reports that we haven’t had a chance to write about until now! Look for them on Thursdays!
As I write this, we are between storms. Yesterday we woke up to a handful of inches of powder and the snow continued all day long. This afternoon, another burst will bring moisture that will last through Friday. The snow this season has been a welcome change compared to the dry winter of last. Most skiers will say last ski season was downright depressing in our neck of the woods. Admittedly, the season was pretty dire. But, it also had it’s moments.
February, 2018 gave us a marked change in weather where moisture finally began coming to Crested Butte. Most people had given up on ski season by then. But, I didn’t. That’s when the North Face Lift opened. And that’s when I skied my first worthy powder for the year.
For some reason, I never posted the pictures. But, with all the powder stoke and excitement surrounding the past and upcoming storms, it seems appropriate to post them now. Here’s some powder stoke from two different skis the Crested Butte backcountry last February. And it was good 🙂

Powder is good for the soul. Bring it on!
