In like a Lion

An old English proverb describes March weather as typically in like a lion and out like a lamb or vice versa, as skiers we'd hope you get a little more lion until about...mid May. With this most recent storm cycle it's clear it has been very lion-like lately.

Argenta on Saturday, the upper half skied gloriously, the lower half...not so much.

With a full day free on Sunday we first headed to Little Pine Couloir until we were about half way up the Chute, when we saw slide debris that lasted forever (at least 500 yards). Not interested in skinning and skiing half the chute littered with debris we headed elsewhere. Here Mark Swartz is harvesting what we came for, unrestricted by avy debris.

Holy Toledo in poor lighting

Two Trees: Mt Superior

Nak got to come out afterwards: here she is leading the way up Ferguson Canyon.
