Skiing Obscure Places

Today was another fine powder day with 6" new this morning and 2" yesterday. The skiing was superb. I spent the morning checking out some of the more obscure places in the ski area. There were runs in Peaceful Valley, The Bald Spot, Elephant's Trunk, Black Forest and The Crags. These are places found around the edges of the ski area. The vertical might not be quite as big and the window of prime skiing might be a little shorter.  But, when the time is right, these zones can be outstanding. This morning was one of those times. They are rarely visited and on a powder day, they are the last to be skied up. They were soft and deep and lightly tracked today.

Love this photo. One of the best I've seen on your blog, and all the pictures are great. If I could have one scene to re-live every day the rest of my days, this one would suit me quite well. Thanks Al!

It’s not a secret that these places are good for skiing, it’s just stupid you have to hike out of these areas. No thanks

Thanks for the nostalgia, the Crags are one of those zones you don’t forget.
