June 6 powder report

The closer we get to summer, the farther away it seems. June 6 on Mt. Rose was raging winds and snow. Several car wrecks on Mt. Rose Highway likely from people who removed their snow tires two months ago. Dense, creamy pow covered a slush puppy layer that skied just fine unless it got a bit too steep in which case wet slides were rampant. Gullies were lined with recent avalanche debris so we stayed on spines and ridges and avoided terrain traps.

  • I love all the snow! I just wish that all the resorts were still open. But at least they are starting to open for mountain biking.
