Skiing in December 2016 and Early January 2017

Sunlight through the aspens on some great snow.

Various days

Carly and I have been out skiing basically every weekend the last few weeks of December and the first couple of January.  The snow in the Wasatch has been fabulous this year.  While not every storm has been cold smoke, many of them have and they have been coming through between 5-7 days between each.  This has kept the snow awesome in the backcountry with constant refreshes of even the most popular areas.  We also had one ski day in Red Mountain Pass Colorado on our New Year’s trip to Ouray.  While the snow sucked at the top of Mt. McMillan the views were good and the wind blown hard snow of CO made us appreciate the Wasatch a little more.
