VTah Part VI — The Most Highly Anticipated Snow on Earth!

By:  Greg
February 28, 2012


I don’t know how long it snowed Saturday night into Sunday, but I do know that when the alarm went off at 5am Sunday morning I was not ready to get out of bed. Grumbling to myself as my legs ached, I heard Lionel in the living room rattling the shades.

“Dude…. it snowed… a LOT,” Lionel muttered. “And…it’s crystal clear. Get up. We’re going.”

We got to the top around sunrise, and couldn’t contain our selves at the sheer depth and lightness of the snow. It was beautiful stuff to be a part of.

For the second lap on Sunday, even though it had stopped snowing, somehow the snow seemed to get even deeper.
getting deeper?

It was “stick-out-your-tongue” deep.

    Hey there, great news! what a weekend. Haven’t had this much fun in ages.
    Wanted to get up to TD but friends decided they wanted something different. I mean who wouldn’t want to go for TD with so much POW out there!!! Oh well, I digress. So wound up going to the Hump. Not as great as you guys had it. I told the party they made a big mistake heading for this area, but they wouldn’t have it. Oh well, I did sneak off on Sunday and went into the north side of Belvidere. It was a good thing to bring snowshoes. Lots of POW. Very
    stable, as far as where I went. Good stuff. Came back via Hazens and made it
    down almost to the main road. Oh well it was great. Let’s take it while the goods are good. You all have a great (SAFE)time out there. Have fun! BC

    Sorry Gregg. Forgot to mention those GREAT photos again. You guys do a smash up job of it. If anyone isn’t excited, then they need to look at those pics and get it going. All it takes is a little energy, and bang you are on it. Love the photos, keep ’em coming. This year has been so snowless, that it’s like having christmas morning all over again. Again SUPER PICs.

      If there was only that terrain on the east coast. Only in the west. Remember that.

    Re-reading this post for the 100th time from work mid-August, have to say what a weekend, makes me almost tear up thinking back to it, praying such an event happens again this winter! (Hopefully a few times)
