Deep Pow

Waking up on Saturday morning we were greeted with the news that we had about 30cm of fresh snow to look forward to. We headed up to Treble Cone which is a freeride only resort to see how it all was. Getting there was interesting with the road being the narrowest so far. Then, the backside of the mountain wasn’t open so the queue on the one lift that was open was a horribly long wait. When we got to the top Alain decided to take me over to a steep basin that was really deep in powder. I struggled to get out as we traversed over to some easier terrain. The depth of the snow combined with the steepness were a little intimidating to me. After getting worn out getting out of there we rode some easier groomed trails and only small areas of powder. After lunch we got a few more runs in and the backside opened up so everyone else went to ride that while I just cruised down to the base. I was pretty worn out at the end of the day and almost fell asleep on the couch.
