This last week featured some above-normal temperatures. It got downright springy!
Saturday we took a ski tour in heavy spring snow at about 1,000 feet in elevation. It was the kind of soft snow where you push with a pole and it loads up with five pounds of mashed potatoes. In our light backcountry gear, it was so hard to turn in the heavy snow. But I have to admit it was nice to be skiing in a fleece vest.
Sunday brought cold temps and everything froze up. Finding groomed snow is key. But the cold will be short lived. Unfortunately we'll warm up again this week. Time to think snowy thought again, folks!
