That's a great shot, and the snow looks great.  It's hard to imagine snow that cold, with the weathere we have here in the NW.

jtack -- the snow in the Gunbarrel was the real deal!  Drifted full of lovely powder.  On Baldy, Micah is a good skier and he used his ninja skills to make a nasty windslab look good.  We had an abnormally warm March that put the hurt on our snowpack, but as far as the new snow, we have a couple things going for us.  Both of these shots are at an elevation about equal to the summit of Mt Adams.  Then the desert climate always keeps the snow dry.  It's a different place as a skier but not without its charms.

Me too sky, glad the science lab is letting the scholars out for some freshest.
