The high elevation backcountry snow is absolutely simmering to perfection right now.

From 9 to noon the peel away corn has been fantastic. Just makes sure you stay high enough so that your line froze last night; unfrozen snow is rotting right now. The snow is getting so soft below 3K feet that postholes on skis aren’t uncommon! My cousin Mike was in town for Saint Patties Day, and we managed to stay high and in the corn!

I think he liked this line.

The Red Falcon showed her face too.

The forecast looks like warm weather through Sunday, then maybe a return to winter. I’ll stay out of that territory though and leave it to our weather dude: Lionel.

      mate of the blue pheonix; this is a stunning glimpse of the falcon in her natural habitat.
