Road Trip!

Postby Noahpz » Tue Mar 08, 2011 6:39 pm

I decided that a week of chasing the wind would be a nice mid-winter break. First stop was Raynolds Pass and the soft snow down below in Island Park. That first day worked out well with fresh snow and abundant wind.

The next stop was Skyline atop the Wasatch Plateau. Six inches of fresh with strong SE winds on a Monday. Not a soul there so I had all of Bosco’s and the West Ridge to myself. About 3:00pm the weather turned whiteout and began dumping. Today should be good as the current storm clears out this afternoon and clearing winds bring sunshine.

See ya out there,

Noah

The new snow is just like pushing the "reset" button.
All the tracks from the Snowkitemasters, look to be covered.
We gotta get together on your trip!!!

Today was Epic Skyline: Steady W winds, 8 - 12 inches of new (right side up) pow and only five kiters. So much powder and such awesome terrain. It was SICK!

Tomorrow: Uintas

Fun riding with you Noah, glad you made it down. That was some of the best powder riding at Skyline this year... so many top ten days, I'm going to start a new list.

Here's to powered powder! :cheers:
