|Anyone else in MN enjoying the snow?
Enjoying is an understatement. I ski Coffee Mill near Wabasha. On Saturday (the 24th) there was near a foot of new ungroomed on the blues and blacks. Great stuff. A little crusty and similar to Cascade concrete, but a great experience making tracks in the untracked. At 2:00 I could still find nice lines near the edges. Even after it got tracked a bit it was still fun. It separated the real skiiers from the Midwest groomed spoiled skiiers. Then I hit the park. The soft snow boosted my confidence so I spent some time on the "big" jump.
Sunday (the 25th) was even better, snow a little deeper and lighter, flying up to my kneecaps on the turns. Unfortunatly, I had more company and the snow got tracked sooner. Still it was great to push the speed limit through the crud. It took all my self discipline to keep from skiing the lift line.
All in all, the two best ski days in years. Maybe we get more tomorrow (Friday Mar 2)
I will be in Utah March 9th. Hopefully it will be even deeper.
