I awoke to -4ºF temperatures and bluebird skies.
I’m from California.
-4ºF is terrifying…
So I slept in, procrastinated, and came up with excuses why not to ski today.
Then, Greggy motivated me, the sunshine motivated, the 8″ of new snow motivated me.
I left the house at 11am hoping that was enough time to warm things up a bit.
Our plan was simple: stay in the sun, do not touch the shadows…
In the sun, it was fine.
Single digits were ok the whole day.
At the top, we even had to sit around and wait for some fog to clear and even then we didn’t get cold.
It was an absolutely great day out there.
The high temp was reportedly only 7ºF and it was ok, even for this California boy.
The skiing was funky.
The snow was wind-pressed, punchy, dust-on-crusty at times, but fun.
We ripped one big, long, gorgeous run.
We weren’t sure this particular spiney, nosey thing went all the way through, but we found out that it does.
We can’t wait to come back and ski it straight through with speed.
We’re off to Jackson Hole, WY and we can’t wait.
It’s been a wild week here in Utah and Nevada.
