Reprise

Ol’ Man Winter looks like he’s coming back for round two in the Rocky Mountains! With snow in the forecast practically every day of this week, we shot up to A-Basin for a quick refresher over the weekend.  Even after enduring a largely dry February and March, a 4″ reload did wonders for the slopes. The whole place was skiing better than we’d imagined.

As an added bonus, I mustered the fortitude to tag my first East Wall run.  For one reason or another I always found a reason not to bother, but with clear skies and fresh snow, I was all out of excuses.
