The photos below were take ~2hrs after the ones above. The red tint comes from a wicked dust storm that blew in with the fresh snow. It's eerie riding red snow to say the least.

Red room???

nice to see some deep pow shots

I like that red snow. Reminds me of a red tide . And surfing in a red tide is pretty trippy too

Great TR

What brought on the dust storm? I've never seen snow look like that before - pretty rad and makes for some cool shots.

I'd say it's a decent first try. I'm sure you'll get better at it.

Nice TR!

Here we changed to corn season, but still hoping for another good storm to get a few last pow turns in.

The storms are lining up and knocking them down as of late. We got almost no snow in the month of March and now April has roared. Berthoud Pass got around 20" Fri-Sun last weekend. Winterpark is reporting another 5" over night today, and another spring storm is hitting this weekend. I will say that the strength of each successive storm seems to be getting weaker, but I'll take it.
