things I want to ski

So yesterday while skiing Twin Peaks we found that the higher elevations held firm snow, while the lower protected slopes were still soft.   It was as if enough surface hoar had grown on the lower slopes during the week long inversion and ice fog cycle to make for some great skiing.  Today, Hunter, Keith and I set out to see if that theory would hold up on the south side of  Tin Can.  We found a rolling line without any tracks  with a couple inches of hoar frost for some smooth skiing.  Who knew snow could grow? I am looking forward to more, it’s been sunny the last two days, which seems twice as nice after sitting in the thick Anchorage ice fog.  Anyway here is a little shot of Hunter at the bottom of our run.
