A nice ski day

We had a nice little storm roll through yesterday and leave about a foot of snow.  It was heavy and wet here at the house but as you got up in elevation, it got drier and lighter.  This shot is from up the hill behind our house.
We opted to ski at Canyons, which tends to be better on the powder days.  They don't groom as relentlessly as Deer Valley and they have hundreds of acres of tree skiing.  We got to the parking lot about 8:40 and there was already a big crowd there.  Between the tourists and the locals craving powder, it was sure to be busy.

Julie, getting some fresh tracks.
We find that some of the best powder skiing is off the Dream Catcher lift.  It can be painfully slow, but you can see how much untracked snow there was for us to play in.
After a sunny, beautiful morning, we headed down to have lunch on our way home.  The clouds came out.  The wind picked up and it got noticeably colder.  Glad Mother Nature was kind enough to give us a gorgeous few hours to track up the snow for everyone else before sending another cold front our way.
