I'm Mike! Although I admit, I mainly follow the FB group posts.
My first TAY and first time skiing in the months of Aug, Sept and October. True powder turns in every month but July and August (missed that July 2nd snowstorm!) After catching a few rare early-season snows in September and October, I made the decision to go for it! Hope to keep it going, we'll see what September brings.
Cool to see the story got picked up in Wenatchee, thanks for posting!
