I flew in last night to the happy site of snow on the ground. It had been a while since I made some turns on snow that actually fell from the sky. The snow was still dry and powdery when I got up there today. I talked to a few guys in the lot who had just came down. They told me it was all skiied off. I climbed the mountain anyways and found the report to be groosly exagerated. There was actually only a few tracks. After a few turns I was quickly reminded of how much more I like riding fresh real snow in the trees, on a mountain I hiked up than I like riding packed snow that was sprayed out of guns at resorts that I sat on my butt to get to the top of. Welcome back real snow!
