Looking Alot Like Winter

By Ann Driggers

Finally! The pattern of dry weather has moved away and we are starting to get a few storms rolling our way. Last week Aspen/Snowmass received two dumpages of over a foot each one of which was a Saturday night - perfect for us weekend warriors. With the backcountry super sketch right now skiing inbounds has been the ticket. Even then some of the steeps were slow to open on account of the avalanche danger but we were happy enough with all the fresh powder, scouting out our low angle stashes and having reason to let the big skis run. Here I am late in the afternoon and still finding plenty of fresh tracks (pic by Sarah Allen):

Laissez le bon temps roulez!
