Backcountry Ski Tour
This past weekend I ski toured out Owl Creek to see what the snowpack was doing and if there is any soft snow to make some turns. Here's what I found...
Cold Temperatures and clear skies keeps the snow soft
Savier's (Silver Peak) Pk looms in the background as I stop to dig a hole in the snow
Surface hoar growing on a White Bark Pine bough. Amazing!
Turns from the ridge. Snow surface is weak and faceted, but soft and fun skiing.

Skiing is an amzing way to see the world. Join the OLA and come skiing with the Community School!
