After a drought for a good portion of December and the beginning of January a huge storm cycle brought lots of new snow and water weight to the snowpack. This unfortunately ramped up a persistent weak layer in the snowpack so skiing lower angle and more treed slopes has been the wise choice.
On Saturday Carly and I skied a few laps on Reynolds Glade and while pretty low angled for most of it we found some nice meadow runs and got some slaloms through the aspens on some surfy snow.
Sunday we headed out with Kasi and Andreas and eventually met up with Adam and Patrick at a spot in Little Cottonwood, called The Church. We skied this area last year with Jeremy and it is a great spot to go on higher danger days because it has a forgiving angle and plenty of trees.
Despite the +2 hour walk in, there were a surprising number of other parties. Even with lots of people we got a few good laps in. The day was just a little snowy, but without any wind so it was great for ambiance.
