Too incredible to put into words, but I will try to sum it up.
A full guided day of untracked fresh powder in the Rossland Range with good friends. Life is good.
The Big Red Cat operation is top notch. Fantastic and professional guides and very nice terrain.
There was some slide danger and our guide Corey made the call to not ski a particular aspect after digging a pit and analyzing the snow layers. There was a surface hoar of concern and the slope was deemed too dangerous, so we traversed to a nearby glade that did not disappoint.
Most of our skiing was in the trees, some steep glades with old trees, some low-angle young small trees. We even skied a burned area and one run had some very tall snow ghosts.
It has been snowing all day and continues into the night. We'll have another powder morning at Red Mountain tomorrow.
This place is pretty incredible. Already on Day 2 of this trip I can say that this is the best ski trip I've ever been on.
Here are a few pix.

SBR, Those must be the ones. I was just guessing about the dimensions. They floated so sweet in the powder that I thought they must have been bigger underfoot! Whatever the size, a great ski in the pow!
