While not strictly backcountry this trip was entirely human powered so I am posting it here.  Josh and I had planned to spend the day riding with our brother-in-law; however, when we arrived at the resort the lifts were not running.  A note stated that they had had a power outage and would not be operating today.  We didn't let this get in the way of our fun.  We donned our snowshoes and set off up the groomed runs.  An hour and a half later we found ourselves on the summit.  We took a gladed run where we found a breakable crust over some wet rotten snow.  Lower down on the groomers it was hard pack & ice.  The weather was gray and overcast.  A great way to spend xmas day!  Now, only if all that rain had been the light and fluffy stuff it would have been pure heaven.  *zoom*
