Did some more hunting today. I went into Broads Fork, despite promising myself never to return after getting my ass handed to me while hiking up it's scree fields last summer.

But its a badass drainage with some really "big" terrain and Ive never visited in the winter so why not?

No snow down low and firm snow up top so I booted the entire 4000 or so feet.

Saw alot of freshly down trees.

Im a little curious how they got this way. Obvious answer would be avalanches but the slopes above them are pretty densly wooded and not all that big so I dont think a slide would pack enough punch to do that much damage. Maybe wind? What did that guy say about a tree falling with no one to hear it again?

Enough with the trees. Back to snow.

Slab+Snow+Sun = Glide Avalanche

Hey Mom, I can see the house from up here!

I gazed through the smog for a bit while the snow softened up a bit more. There was an inch or two of fresh snow from yesterday that combined with a little wind was insulating the more seasoned snow underneath from thawing.

When it was time, I finished my koolaid and went for a ride.

Up high...

2400 ft and a the majority of Hendrix's Bold as Love later...

The top 1/4 was what I like to call character building snow but it eventually transitioned into a smooth creamy surface. Easily the longest continous line Ive ever ridden.

In hindsight I could have probably waited a day for the new snow to burn off but what else was I gonna do with a day off?

I love late spring. You basically have the whole range to yourself!
