Morning Powder Afternoon Mank | UNITED STATES, WYOMING | 02/26/2008, by powderjunky
The morning skiing was great. The powder was a little thicker than normal, but hopefully the warmth helped the new accumulation to bond with the sun crust layer underneath. However, on sunny aspects the top layer is sitting on a text book sliding surface and could be problematic down the road.
As the day rolled on, the clouds rolled out and the sun began to scorch the mountains. The lower elevation powder turned into really super-duper heavy-as-lead mashed potatoes. The sunny aspects at the upper elevations also took a beating.
On our way out for our last run of the day we ran into a real nice guy who turned out to be Chris Davenport, the guy who skied Colorado's fourteeners in a year. He was fun to talk with and real down to earth.
The forecast has some more snow in the short range radar so keep those fingers crossed!
