It's been a season of battling that overzealous early successional scrub that flourishes in the otherwise open tree lines that make for great skiing - to think what a foot or two would do. If you want the goods right now you really need to get above tree-line, whether that's in the Whites or on one of the few open summits in the Greens. But this weekend time and energy didn't allow for a high alpine excursion, so we set out for a mid-elevation tree stash. Expectations were low, and the snow, not terrible actually.
Really, we were pleasantly surprised. It could have been a lot worse, and it always feels good to be out there.
Pray for Snow!
