My borther and I headed up to Montezuma Basin Friday night in order to reap some goods out of the latest storms. The forecast was for pretty crappy weather (winds to 35mph and a 40% chance of snow). The forecast, however, was ~12hours off because during the night the storm blew in which made for a cruddy night's sleep as we were camped near the bench at the entrance of the basin proper. This turned out to be a blessing though because we woke up to calm winds and a few inches of fresh, cold, winterlike snow.
In all, we made three awesome laps with the third lap comming down a chute from the ridge that connects Castle and Conundrum. A great day with great snow conditions. You can't ask for much more this early in the year.
Enough blabbing, on with the stoke.......
