We've had a heck of a string of hot days in the mid-Atlantic. Humid too. In the Wash DC area the eight days preceding last Friday had a high temperature of 95 degs F or higher. Hopefully, this heat wave is going to break soon. But I'm already looking for a mental break, so here's a fotographic flashback of some of my best powder experiences from last winter.
X-C skiing in 6" of new snow with my wife at Canaan Valley State Park, WV on 1/22/16:
Deepest snow I skied all winter, two feet of new snow from Winter Storm Jonas at Canaan Valley Ski Area on 1/23/16; Patroler Paul:
Snowshoeing with my wife later same day:
The day after Winter Storm Jonas was unbelievable at Timberline Ski Area, WV, 1/24/16. This is Matt in Cherry Bowl Glades (track heading towards camera is mine )
More of my best buddies at Timberline, Jimmy:
My son Vince at Snowbird on 1/27/16. He handed me my head on a platter this day. I found the snow and terrain very challenging.

Possibly my favorite day of the ski season, Apr 1, 2016; packed powder can be almost as nice as deep powder when the sun comes out like this day in Mineral Basin, Snowbird:
Same day in Great Scott, it was as friendly as Big Emma this day:
Yours truly next day at Alta. Thanks to Spikedog for the rare photo when my skis are mostly pointed downhill
