Dusted off the skiis for this one. Excellent corn.
Excellent corn up in this area, and the porter fork road had pleanty
of exciting old turds to avoid on the way down.
Da Fang & Days
The usual Days fork tour, but with incredible snow for the latter
half of April. The foot of new snow also made for some excellet avalances.
From ski cutting the top of the runs, I started some of the biggest
slab avalances I'd seen in years. Total Fun! The skiing was great
too. Each time we neared the top of the ridge, we could hear the
down to Alta was terrifying as there was Zero snow under the new
snow. It looked like powder, felt like rocks. We got back to the
sun at 8:15.
AKA Wet Sluffer
An afternoon quickie where we thought we'd find some good powder
left over from 4 days of snow storms. Unfortunately a few hours of
heat and sun had cooked the powder on all aspects. At least the west
facing powder was soft from solar radiation, and it made for some
excellent wet slides. As we went up the trees next to stone crusher,
a large natural wet avalance came scraping down next to us. I tested
out my split board tele skis and loved the floatation.
Manky pre-corn, but fun none the less. This was my first time to
ski this line which is exactly 2000 vert of everything you could
ask for in one run. Powder princess was conjuring up multiple roller
balls that quickly grew to her height as they rolled down behind
her, unable to catch up.
