Spring: From High to Low
It takes an extremely special Completely Average April storm to bring entire chutes “back from the dead”…
And it takes an extraordinarily magnificent Completely Average April storm to bring whole seasons back from the dead as well (just a few degrees colder and we’d have been looking at VTah VII no doubt).
As we descended from high to low back to spring, we realized this storm had been incredibly odd. Upslope snow is usually a middle-of-winter treat, but this storm had “spring” written all over it. The snow was heavy, wet, and pasted into wierd places. We decided we simply had to go back up high–backwards in time–and find out what weird places this storm had put snow in. We wanted to see what other things this spring storm had “brought back from the dead.”
But before that could happen… I just had to get these boots off for a second…
After our break, we sprung back up high, and soon discovered, lines that are usually too tight to hold snow, somehow got filled in by this spring storm.
Lines that are too exposed to hold snow, somehow got filled in by this spring storm.
Lines that are usually too easily accessible to hold snow, somehow got filled in by this spring storm.
