This trip report was written up by Scott

Deep as in the depth of the snow. Kyle, Skier Dan and myself headed out ready to get some of the goods, and the goods were good.

Kyle gets caught making out with the powder.

We stuck mostly to familiar terrain in the south bc due to low visibility. It was puking and breaking trail was extremely tedious.

Stugie knee deep.

Breaking trail was worth it though, as there was some immensely good snow to be had. Although it was puking the whole day, we only worried about sluffs, and seeing one sluff-slide naturally from a rock face, causing a rush of powder so light it practically dissipated into the air.


Dan stabs it with his steely knife and kills the beast.

The day ended by hastily drying things out for the following day.





The following day resulted in the same euphoric, blissful feeling in the same light, deep powder. Only it was bluebird....yeah, bluebird.

Weighing out the options.

Skinning out of C. Basin after freshies...only our freshies;)

Stugie digs in.

Dan shows Stugie how its really done.

Kyle milks it.

The day ended in a lot of beer, an enormous pile of nachos, and a late night at the base of the mountain. If you got it while it was good, great. If not, stay stoked cause there's HELLA more on the way!
