Near here in Colorado, we have an alpine road that’s closed all winter and usually opens around now, providing amazing access to high altitude spring ski touring. Independence Pass. This past weekend included a Saturday storm day, (which incidentally was when folks were planning an informal party, subsequently rescheduled to next weekend). The weather dropped a few inches of new on nicely frozen substrate. Sunday was the day. My old friend Art Burrows came along and shot some pics, and Lisa did some photos as well. Check it out.
