High Density Powder Day- 1.30.2014- Solitude Mountain Resort
After a very long drought with no snow, we finally got a storm that gave us a much needed paint job. The goods were of the high density variety, which cushioned the ride nicely, and bonded with the old snow, leaving that scratchy, greasy, worn out old layer a distant memory. I started out my day on the front side finding smooth lines and deep pockets you could just charge through. As I made my way across the mountain, I found even better snow, and deeper pockets of untouched perfection. I hit the Headwall Forest off Summit, and it was money! Honeycomb opened after some blasting, and it was very nice back there. This was just what the doctor ordered, and I took full advantage of the off trail goods that were there for the taking. It looks to be that we may have finally broke the back of that high pressure that has robbed us of so many storms over the last few weeks. This new deposit has opened up even more terrain and buried any nastiness that would have otherwise cursed us for the foreseeable future. Thank you snow gods for showing up just when we needed you. High flying slashable goodness was had by all. Enjoy the highlights in this edit, and lets keep this party going! Pray 4 Snow!
