Snowy Steep Wednesday

A good 4-6 inches on top of the 12" this week and things were looking up on the mountain. Headed up first chair to Copper Bowl and had the whole place nearly to myself for almost an hour. Winds were gusting over 25mph at the top of Union Peak. Took a few pics of the morning...

First run down Julie's Vision, nice soft deep powder on the leeward slope.
So good I had to do it twice...
Hike up the West Ridge to drop off the ten foot cornice just past Bradley's Plunge.
Feeling mighty good and the ice beard had not yet grown to its full extent yet!
A few diggers as the snow got heavier and the sun came out, but it was a glorious way to start the day!
