|killclimbz||I only have two mutts and Cody is the only one fit for playing in the snow. The other two pooches were Wahine (Steve's dog) and Bella (Pete's husky). When you go to buy your backcountry kit they come with a free dog in Colorado...|

Linville was on slowshoes. On the drive up I told the crew that he was on them and that he planned to use them for the season. I also said that by the end of the day he'd be talking about getting a splitboard asap. After hiking through the ultra light very unsupportable snow pack he was wasted by the second lap. Things started out well for him.
Then he got towards the bottom of the run...
and the legs couldn't take it anymore...
Nice and soft so no harm done. It was definitely treat that day and I can confidently say it was the best powder day of the season.
Until next time.

The Front Range mountains in Colorado have been hammered pretty good by a series of storms over the last week. I wasn't able to get out into the thick of it, but had my chance to go check out what was happening last Sunday. 2-4" had fallen over night but the temps for the previous 4 days had been very warm. I was figuring dust on crust and the day would be a two mile hike for an ord (one run day). I couldn't have been more wrong. The forum's own Linnvillegorge decided to join in on the action this day.
The top of our first run was looking pretty good.
And it was.
Steve thought so.
Pete enjoying the early season pow.
And Linville got deep into the shadows.
