March 24, 25. A Weekend at Hurricane
« on: 03/26/12, 09:21 AM »

On Saturday I skied a not-often skied zone at Hurricane with GaryJan. The snow was holding up so well, I decided to return on Sunday with a local shredder. South side conditions reflected the high temps shown on telemetry, while conditions on shady, steeper north aspects were top-notch consistent, dry, stable powder.

Anticipation.


Satisfaction.


Testing the stability


Les cuts deep


If the skis are on it still counts.


The best run yields the worst picture.


Skinning out for the final time.


A wet and heavy run back to the car can't spoil the mood.


All pics taken w/ my iPhone because a better camera won't make me a better photog.

Bravo!

Nice work and pics! I wish I had chosen your route as it felt like an invasion where I was...too many TRs.

Skiing was great though despite the crowds!

Thank you for the ambiguous route title.  We've been skiing in that area for over 20 years.  Its a good one.  Looks like stellar conditions.

Great day in the mountains with you Tyler, definitely one of the better ones this year.  Cheesy

Somewhere between "Anticipation" and "Satisfaction" is "Sweet, Sweet Bliss".

Here's a shot of Tyler about to get some.
