A Completely Average April

April 26, 2010


As Greg and Allen descended into the valley, they returned to spring weather, and found the season’s avalanche debris beginning to melt out.

After this perfect sunny-but-crisp day of powder skiing on Mount Washington, we were sure that now, the powder skiing season was really over. Right?

Wrong.
Snow again

From the 16th to the 18th of April, 15 inches of snow fell on Mount Washington, unaccompanied by wind. Despite his steadfast belief that powder skiing season was over, Allen decided he could tolerate one more day.

Ben was stoked to ski powder. (seriously, whoa there!)

Christian was also excited to see white on the mountain, and knew the riding was going to be much better than the trip to Gulf of Slides earlier in the week.

      D: thanks for checking in dude. Sorry it didn’t work out to meet up on Saturday. We’ve been basically calling our lines as we see them based on real time conditions… so yeah… that means good skiing, but also being really flaky for anyone who we are trying to meet up with. sorry about that. We actually did pass through OG, and i checked my phone to see if i could give you a ring and see if you were there, but i couldn’t get service. It will happen sometime! thanks again, and pray for snow!

    Excellent as always guys. Yeah, I’d say that shot was worth it……but I didn’t have to climb up there to get it. ;-) You guys are animals. More pow on the way….

      Thanks Gregg. I should dig out the shot I have from last season when the thing was covered in a veneer of ice, and both Sam and I refused to ski it even though we knew it’d be an incredible picture.

    Nice work as always. Hope you guys plan on making another calendar this season… I see a few shots just from April this year that would work great.
