Had a downright enjoyable ski day yesterday. Sketchy avalanche conditions and a windy forecast steered us to a well-known spot. It tends to be crowded, but it's got a 45 minute + skin in as a price of admission and so there's often snow for everyone. There's a reason for it being well known, too: it holds great snow, offers open bowl skiing, and has minimal slide danger.
Anyway, we hit the jackpot there yesterday with fluffy untracked ultra-consistent snow that lasted even as the crowds showed and all the way through 7 runs. (This hardly phased our strong crew, but had my legs quivering by the end of the day.)
