Report from March 29th, 2019

Fresh snow, spring weather on a bluebird day, and exceptional snow coverage made for a perfect combination.

The day began with fast fresh powder over a compact snowpack. 

On my second run I tried an alternate entrance into the classic chute, Once is Enough. I found out that certain areas of the mountain featured very different conditions.

When Powder was found, it was incredible. The perfect combination of soft snow and resistance to cut speed allowed me to hit some larger features. However, as the snow warmed up it started to become a bit sticky.

As the sun rose higher in the sky and the snow got softer I met up with some friends on the mountain and the spring session really got started.

Overall Kirkwood was amazing for the end of March. The spring snowpack is deep, the mountain is filled in incredibly, and you can feel the good vibes on the mountain.
