Snow Report #2
Welp. Its been about 10 days since we've had snow. The resort is loosing so much snow every day. It feels like spring. Those of you who hate winter, please send snow my way. I don't have all my visas in order yet so I can't hop on the bike just yet.
Today we decided to go trekking to find snow. We climbed to about 3300m and drop in on the north face of a slope. It was well protected from the wind and the sun so we actually found some decent powder. It was crusty but at least not icy. This time instead of a dump truck we hitched a ride in a Ukrainian semi truck.
Noah was the fast one? I got a bit of a head start.. so I could snap some photos.
You don't want to go where the rocks are.
Huge wet slides on most of the south facing slopes. You have to choose where you go wisely and stay safe.
Sometimes you ride the windlip. sometimes the windlip rides you.
Other people are a bit more graceful
