After we got all of that snow the sun came out with vengeance. It went from one extreme to another. One day, I was skiing Squaw with four lifts open and free refills on every run and the next day I was sweating bullets while riding my sled up to Blackwood trying to get the last of the powder.
I was looking forward to a slow change of seasons, but mother nature had something else in mind. She heated up and traded us snow for sunlight. At first I needed a break from shoveling, but after a day of sun, I had had enough.
The change was too quick for me and I woke up one morning with a feeling of emptiness in my stomach. Where did all of our snow go? I'm not ready for full spring conditions. Luckily, we got the last of it in Blackwood.
I went up with Moss Halliday and Andrew Burns to get some fresh turns. It was a pretty mellow day, but so much fun. The snow was creamy and ripe for ripping fast lines. A day later and the spines in the first photo were all rock. See ya later winter. Hopefully you'll be back on Thursday like the weatherman says. Miss you.
