Powder

Lack of posts is simply due to the shear quantity of powder that I've been skiing. 21 of the last 26 days, every single one of them has had at least some powder, including some extremely DEEP powder on Jake's Peak, Squaw Valley, and La Grave. Been in France for almost 2 weeks and La Grave hasn't only lived up to my trip in 2006 (the trip I've previously pointed to as the best skiing I've ever done) but easily exceeded it. This place is simply amazing. A few pics my friend Joe Puchek took of me.

La Vaute, one of the greatest ski runs in the world IMHO

Deep powder

More powder

and more powder

sometimes accessing the goods takes a little work
