    The best thing next to a powder day on a Monday morning is major dumpage in the early season. Wyoming is getting its dump on and building a base finally.

    Togwotee…here I come in a couple of weeks.

    You beat me to it. We had a dusting in town yesterday, and up in the mountains above 7,000 feet there is probably over 5″. Here we come!

    The pass is just starting to get goin’.I saw some turns up there on 10/5!
    Targhee is looking good as well.I would recommend waiting it out a little longer-“the softest rock is harder than the hardest flesh”.
    New digs and new job status will let me out in the b/c and frontcountry a lot this year so,if info on the area is needed I’ll try to help.I am a pretty good partner as well and dig the tele and a/t deals.SNOW ON!!!

    I woke up this morning to this:

    Early season snow can be both good and bad.

    The good thing is it gets us excited about winter. It definately signifies a change. And, if we get enough snow, we can sneak in a few runs.

    The bummer is once you have snow on the ground that is not going to melt away soon, it has a good chance of rotting out (faceting) and can become a persistant weak layer throughout the year.

    For those in areas who have significant amounts already, lets hope it keeps snowing. Additional snow falls are a good thing to slow the rotting process. If not, pay attention to what happens to our first layer – already on the ground.

    Most savy backcountry riders consider this to be a bit early for significant snow in many areas.
