Life really is better Here

About as cold as it looks.
Love it! How deep was the snow? And how about that snowstorm on Saturday? My drive home from West Yellowstone was sketchy.I loved skiing Bighorn Pass trail in Yellowstone the last few days.
Luckily, someone else broke trail the first 3 miles and I didn't have to do the hard work. I went a big beyond and it was tough, also a lot of weak snow layers that gave way. Glod I didn't go into any of the higher areas.

I'm considering that trail for my next outing this weekend. Also considering Specimen Creek, Bacon Rind Creek, and Teepee Pass. Too many good options in that area.
I kind of like breaking trail because I like to see the untouched snow, so maybe I'll try heading there! Haha. My skis are 98mm in the shovel, so they should hopefully be able to give me a bit more flotation in the powder.drove past Bacon Rind yesterday and no one has skied it yet. You need to break trail. The snow is deeper than last year, deep and fluffy.
When the snowstorm hit I just went and skied in West Yellowstone. I didn't want to drive out far that day. I'll do Fawn Pass trail maybe tomorrow. Never done Specimen before, so I don't know how steep it gets. Most of the trails I ski I have hiked in the summer. I need to look at Teepee Pass, I haven't done that yet either.
And I hear you!! I'm already running out of days again. So much to do
98mm is what I dream about to be my next pair of backcountry ski. I only have the 68mm and breaking trail is often a lot off work.I kind of like breaking trail because I like to see the untouched snow, so maybe I'll try heading there! Haha.

Looking forward to seeing what other places you get out and ski!
Awesome shots. Looks like a great day.From almost too much snow yesterday on the Cascade Crest, we were dodging rocks and gouging bases today, 25 miles east of the Crest above Blewett Pass.

The stripped trees are a combo of larch w/o needles and a 2012 wildfire.
