April Powder....Brings May Corn

WOW! Mother Nature and Ullr blessed the Eagle River valley with two back to back sizeable storms.  20" on Saturday night, and 10" Sunday night.  And the best part about this is that it stayed cold for the last couple of days, -2F when I pulled into work this morning.

A dogz life...
As the Snobomb would say, "that's alotta fuggin snow."  Almost shoulder deep on dogface.

I've skied the last three days in a row and it did not suck.  I played it safe in the South Fork trees, east facing shoulders of the North Bowl ridge, and finally the lookers left bowl of the Two Bowls drainage.

Despite these late season dumps, this has honestly been the best snow i've skied all year.

Face shots for everyone!
This weekend promises blue bird days, cool temps and powder skiing.  I've got some objectives in mind - it may require another bottle of water and an extra sandwich.

Ski safe, ski fast, take chances!

And I guess there's a new avy forecast for the Chugach Front and Eagle River.  You can find it here.
