PRESIDENTIAL POWDER

Hour long lift lines? Logo riddled Starter jackets? Jeans and sunglasses? Step-ins and jester hats? Yup, its a holiday weekend. This Presidents Day weekend was preceded by a week long thaw that melted low elevation snow, but placed several feet of new snow along the spine of the Greens. Avoiding the crowds, we dipped into many high elevation nooks and crannies in search of a powder harvest fit for a president.
