Winter is back at Wolf Creek. The early season opened with a bang, but January was dry until the last day of the month, when a 40" storm started to hit the mountain. I had some fun experiencing stuff like this at 2:00 in the afternoon...
The snow was great, but we also got to share the storm with some special people. @Mom brought her friend Lisl out to Wolf Creek after their Winter Park plans fell through when the passes started closing.

Lisl is not capable of making an awkward turn.
Together they joined up with my wife (Callmijane on Diva), who has always felt shaky on powder. And instead of getting in every single run they could on a very fine deep day, they slowed things down to work with her...
On Pole plants.
And facing the upper body down the fall line.
And suddenly my wife was getting it and making turns like this.
And even to charge straight down the bore of a chute like this.
It felt like we had some friends come to visit for the express purpose of giving my wife the best powder day ever.
