On Sunday morning I woke up at 5am to the sound of the snowplow going by, which was a surprise because I didn’t know we were expecting snow. It snowed all morning long, and it was light and fluffy stuff. However I had some more important stuff to tend to before I could go for another ride. I didn’t get up to my local playground until about 3pm. When I pulled into the lot there were 2 others ready to go up as well. We all climbed up together on my summit express skinning route. As we climbed higher and higher there was more and more fresh snow, and it was all beautiful low density dry powder (Utah Style). At the summit there was nearly a foot of new snow compared to the 6” at my house a few miles away. Snow conditions today were the best I’ve seen yet this year, and some of the best I’ve ever seen here.
I had my camera on the wrong setting so most of my shots didn’t come out great, but here is a few
The only picture of me I got, and the camera decided to focus on the tree instead .
I shared a few secret stashes with a few new friends and enjoyed the powder while it was here. But the ephemeral nature of powder reared its ugly head way too fast and freezing rain moved in last night and turned it all into a mankey mess .
