Agree.  Silver on Saturday was a nice start.  Just our group and a soloist.  Eventually 2 others came along for a lap and disappeared.

Got real antsy after turning the corner past the lift and saw that break trail was required.  Pow between saddle and party knoll was good, deep but vis was spotty.  Face shots on demand.

Glad to meet you Clem.

Then there was solitude on Stevens on Sunday.

A fine start to the powder season. For about 3 out of every 4 turns I could imagine it was mid-winter. Now instead of taking out low snow anxieties on repeatedly waxing my skis I can work on base repair. Thanks for all the trailbreaking.
