Chalk and Ski

Well, it appears as though things are starting to shape-up up here as-far-as coverage goes and this latest wave of moisture will really help open up some more terrain to get the season going. Even though some locations out there have a thick windslab and depth hoar layer that could be rather hazardous, I was still able to put together a 6k’ day on Teton Pass yesterday not too far from where the stability test was performed.  (I think I counted 14 laps. :) ) Only time will tell how touchy the snow pack becomes as more snow and weight gets loaded on it.

I thought I’d share this little feel good video, by our friends from Purple Orange, that I saw at the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival last night.  It’s worth checking out this film-fest if you have the time, so click here to see when it is coming to your town. 

Have a great weekend!!!

    Beware of windslab over depth hoar it is extremely unpredictable.
