So I had some work yesterday morning in a little town that rhymes with gopher. So in the car went the skis and kites just in case. Forecast was 6-8 north. I got up to Lizard Head just after lunch to find snow smoking off the tops of the plow drifts. Wasn't expecting it, but got pleasantly surprised with a blue skies, clean winds 15-20. Logged 36 miles of kite-skiing on great powder. It's really deep now! The hill on the west side of the highway is now covered and providing some great vertical (6000+ feet in 3 hours). Mark from Telluride and Andy from rhymes-with-gopher showed up as well. It's always the best when you're not expecting it but score a killer session!
