After a couple weeks of warm temps the snow was completely shot. Dawn patrols were done. Waking up early to go scrape your way down some bulletproof ice usually doesn't sound appetizing at 5 in the morning. Thankfully you can always count on some amazingly deep days in March and April.
When we saw this storm moving in we made plans to get out for a good morning tour. Josh, Chase, and I hit the trail early and made good time. We dropped in to Silver Fork and got some really good snow. Good conversation always makes a skin track seem shorter. There really is no better way to start a day.
