March 20, 2014, Kendall Trees. Holy Pow!
« on: 03/20/14, 06:39 PM »

Had a great time harvesting 8" of pow in the Kendall Trees today. Left the car at 12:30. North and West aspects in the trees above 4,000' provided great turns. The only signs of instability were above the trees in the slide path from pinwheels. Just one other soul in the entire area and caught up to him on the way out after several laps. Returned to the car by 4:00.

Enjoy,
Dave

A little teaser...

Good to meet you Dave. Thanks for posting your vid so I can relive the day over my morning coffee. Too bad about all the tracks you had to cross Wink

Dave Thomas and I did a redo x 3 today and it was still great powder. Open areas had  crustiosous. Luge run out was heavy.  Thanks again for the timely posting and both you and Bigeo you for the uptracks. We retired to the New silver Fir Bar for a cold one
