It has been dumping most of the day today (Sunday), and my son tells me he'll spend the next three days near the Teton Pass Ski Area skiing the South Fork Waldron/Teton Peak and Lockhart drainages.
That's where we found pretty good snow on Saturday, but nothing like the great stuff he'll find this coming week.
|At first, snow conditions were less than promising|
|The season's last turns?|
At the bottom we found open ground and snowmelt.
It didn't take long to find deep snow and winter-like conditions.
The storm we're getting today was brewing and we got some wind and some snow.
The snow was slushy and icy below and a tad crusted in the high country below the North Fork Waldron bowls.
We were able to get some turns in several gullies that we had explored last December.
This Lockhart Mountain country near the ski resort has had pretty consistent and good snow all winter.
We're in the stage the season that we're thinking about putting up the skis once and for all.
This new snow makes me question that judgment.
