Give Us an Inch, and We’ll Schuss a Foot
With careful route finding we were able to manage deep snow on the downhill…
…and old surface on the up.
The phenomenon of wind loading was truly incredible. Upwind/exposed terrain was downright scoured to rock and soil in place. In the lee however well over a foot had been deposited. The contrast was amazing and absolute. Indeed, give this mountain an inch… and it makes a foot. Amazing.
Steep… manageable avalanche conditions… powder snow… Ben must be dreaming. Is he still in Utah?
