Wednesday was amazing, lowest water content I’ve skied all season. Last year we had an epic 30″ dump of pure blower powder and Wed. was almost as good. I headed up early and met up with John Howland and Dane Weister, Wilderness and Timberline were both closed for the day so we had plenty of prime terrain for shooting. Four hikes later and a full memory card I found myself cruising home with some serious wind burn and a perma-grin. Enjoy the photos and get your butts up to the mountains this weekend.

Went up early to Bolton again this morning, this time accompanied by a new guy….Ryan. We’re always stoked to have new riders come along, especially if they rip. Today the plan was to do some backcountry touring outside of the ski area boundary. We combed the mountain for leftover pow and decided around 11am to throw the skins on and jump off piste. Last week we dropped a few hints on how to reach the line we skied, hopefully nobody heads up that way because it was scraped off and quite frankly, dangerous. Today it was just far to good to expose our route, Bolton continues to bring the sickness and today was no exception. I still have that perma-smile on from getting snow in the face so many times. Our new guy (and hopefully a regular from now on) mentioned that it was “the best east coast skiing he’s ever experienced”. This isn’t a rarity, I’ve said it at least 10 times myself and I’ve heard our previous guests saying the same thing.

**On another note there is an enormous blurb on the map for mid-week…it looks like the mountains could get slammed. GAME ON! Stay tuned into Alpine-Live.com for weather updates as they become available.
