Icicle, 1/18/2016, Bridge Creek Campground

Good turns were had today above 8 Mile Road.  Actually, let me rephrase that.  Stellar turns were had.  Kyle Flick and I managed nearly 6k with three laps on gorgeous, stable powder.  Runs that exceeded all expectations.  In fact, this winter has far exceeded my expectations already.

You're poaching my pow stash!

That looks suspiciously a lot like the zone I've been hitting up a lot this year. In fact I almost went there today.

Nice Jon, we had some good turns, but did not have the stable snow, I think I might have to go take a sample up that way, thanks for the report.
