May 2, 2013, Pineapple Pass
« on: 05/02/13, 02:37 PM »

Of course this weeks new snow is getting mushy.  Some good turns from pineapple through big trees, 4-6" deep moist fresh snow, but not too heavy, even for a torn meniscus.  The views were superb, occasional sluffs were coming off the rock faces of the Tooth, Hemlock, and Bryant.  The resulting chunder was soft and reasonably skiable.  The trees have shed their fresh snow, so no tree bombs.    https://vimeo.com/65484169

All snow, even corn is powder at one point right?  Wink
