Weather Undercast

We love when the "snow forecast" is an undercast!
The experts were saying 1-3 inches of snow overnight but we really got 3-6 inches, leading to a perfect day on the trails!

"Turn around? Really? But we haven't touched all the new snow yet!" declare my happy
partners when I called out time to turn around and head back to the trailhead.

We are still in the mist of the super busy "Christmas/New Years" span, so we headed to some of the trails we know to be infrequently used. What a good decision, we had the new snow all to ourselves and were laying fresh tracks in 3-6 inches all day long! It sure pays off to know the secret trails! And, no, I am not saying where these trails are located :-)

Sprinting along untouched powder - wheeee!

This video captures the day perfectly. Sprinting & bouncing along a trail of fresh powder!
I love watching the black skis flash in & out of the powder.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

The following pair of shots from the day show more of the fun & powder we had. Nobody on the trails but us and the wildlife.

A day of "powder to ourselves" covering 8.6 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
