Unbelievable conditions for late April!!!!

Postby Chrisjparke » April 20th, 2015, 7:25 pm

Noah and I went out for a tour early on Saturday, April 18th 2015 and were blown away by the conditions. We hiked up and over the saddle via Snowbowl and into the North Core region, where we quickly realized that snow had been blown into many of these NE facing chutes and couloirs and turned a measly 2 inches of fresh into over a foot of pow in some spots!! There is still plenty of snow in the area, and plenty of all-time backcountry skiing still to be done this season in Arizona if you're willing to hike a bit! We're gonna head out again next Saturday, anyone want to come? :mrgreen:

Here's our GoPro edit from the day:

Sweet edit, Powell's looked gnarly!
