Getting ready.

Upward.

Surface hoar, fun as hell to ski but worth noting regarding future snowpack conditions.
Image

Beauty.

Low angle pow surfing.
Image

Rusty technique (need to get the tip down and leading hand up).
Image

Half way down our first run we ran into gimpy on his second run (fuggin locals always start earlier). :D

Mmcpheet and I decided to grab a little more elevation for our exit run.
