After a week of backcountry powder skiing in Canada, I was a bit worried about the conditions we were coming back to. With no Internet connection for the week, I wasn’t sure what, if anything was in the forecast. The snow gods must have sensed my concern, because the night we returned, it snowed.
Cold temps and a second sleeper storm later in the week meant that we were still finding powder stashes through last Friday, which boded well for the holiday weekend. We knew we’d have to share the snow, but figured that there was enough terrain at Carson Pass for everyone’s tracks.
Yes, not all the rocks are covered, but we were pleasantly surprised with both the coverage and the snow conditions. Sunday’s trip yielded windboard, powder, and big grins.
