The avy report from this morning said this is the worst snow year in over 60 years. Looking around Utah County I believe it. It also said, "Yesterday it seemed like winter had been cancelled due to lack of interest." SHAME. There's stil plenty to be had, maybe not winter skiing but the spring season is here!
Andy, Swain, and I headed to Mt. Timpanogos yesterday in search of a little corn on the higher aspects. Andy and I both had to work until 3:30 the night before so the 6AM wake up felt awful. 2 1/2 hours of sleep for this season's snow seems like bad idea but just isn't. We picked up Swain and were a little slow getting to Aspen Grove. A 7:45 start had us all concerned we'd be bailing before we got anywhere due to heat.
|Perfect smooth snow and lots of it!|
