And up here, it's looking more like this will be a fond memory from our last La Niña.
I will be dirt-bagging it for a few weeks with a good friend in February. What's the parking lot policy at the Snowbowl?
We have a time frame but won't have a definitive plan put together until late January. Neither of us have ever gone too far South. The current sketch takes us in the general direction of Wolf Creek, and Silverton.
If the pattern looks favorable in Feb, perhaps we can meet up in Flagstaff for a few days? I sent him your Blizzard of NAZ edit. The video made him giddy. He was only vaguely aware of your unique terrain stash down in the corner of the DSW.
Both of us a pretty conservative from a risk perspective. We both have AAIRE 1 certs. He often leads when we're outside the boundaries. I tend trust the judgement of people with parental responsibilities much more than my own. He's been my favorite touring partner over the past three seasons. One of the few people I know out here, besides my old lady, that I trust with my life. A bit older than me (mid 50's), yet all types of snow, he still floats with the power and grace of a late-teen ballerina. Good snow is his cocaine. I've never seen him tired on a Powday.
If the weather permits, I think we'd have a blast.
