After springlike conditions early this weekend, a cold front moved through and we were skiing in little snow squalls all afternoon. Here are some shots as we made our way across the Camas Prairie. Cold, windy, muddy, and snowy.
After almost a year, the beast is out of the shop and ready to rock. I took the sled for a maintenance test ride on both Saturday and Sunday. While the storm was not really hitting Sun Valley with its full might, up near Dollarhide Summit there was about a foot of fresh snow and I was the first person to ride down the trail. I almost forgot how much fun it is to rip down a trail with 12 inches of fresh snow at 60 m.p.h.
The next day I went out Baker Creek on the last test drive and did a recon for some good backcountry skiing areas. I found some. I’ll be back later this year with skis and skins ready to schralp!
Here is the sled below Dollarhide:
All ready to load back up in the truck after the first ride:
Yesterday I was driving home and stopped to snap some photos on the Camas Prairie. It had been snowing for the past week and a cold front was moving in. As I made my way across the prairie, i was able to watch the blue sky and high winds displace the storm clouds that brought our mountains 3-5 feet of snow last week. Enjoy!
