Round Two

Fist shot is High above Eat the Worm, Ice Box and the Wave.

A mid week top off of a foot of snow with little wind yeilded more fantastic skiing. Flying out of the zone at the end of the week it really seems like spring has arrived with large cumulous puffers slowly moving past the ridgetops. Though now it is a snowy slury at base and the zone is getting crushed once again.

The Storm

It tends to snow a bit at times in the Chugach. Over the past 16 days between 4 -5 meters of snow has fallen in the high mountains. Skiing just in the trees of the Orca backyard was deep, over the shoulders by skiing terms and we're talking only between 2000' and the ocean. Getting out into the zone yesterday was like flying into a different range, snow encased everything and the skiing was DEEEEP. Its snowing again now so we will have to wait a bit more to reap the full benefits.
