While some nice fresh snow has been piling up at higher elevations this past week (in the 1-5″ range) there’s nothing but a good ol’ fashioned crust coating most lower to middle elevation terrain. Fortunately, this crust is relatively supportive and offers a smooth skiing surface, especially with some fatter skis. Close to home, our favorite pastures, lower-angle logging roads and open woods lines have been especially fun recently… This skiing provides us with a great chance to keep the car parked for the day, and enjoy a ski session right out the back door.
Here’s a compilation of footage that celebrates one of our favorite backyard ski tours, a run we ski right off the mud room porch at AdventureSkier headquarters. Conditions right now are pretty similar, albeit we’ve got a bit more snow to work with and a more solid crust to the surface (but this surface should soften nicely with more fresh snow tonight 2/3).
Ski you out there! – Brian
