Back on February 26th Noah Howell, Andy Jacobsen and myself (Jonah Howell) got out for a nice stroll in our backyard.
It was a really cool day with some low clouds and blue skies above them.
Andy skinning up to get the goods.
Noah dropped in first on a really cool line.

That’s all the photos we have for the day since Andy decided to get in on the fun and ditch the camera. It’s always a good time when you get out with your close friends.

I’m starting to feel a tiny bit guilty about all the blog posts on deep powder. Not bad enough to stop though. Stormy pow days have been what this season has to offer and we have been grateful recipients.
Spring is just around the corner and we are enjoying the deep snow while it lasts. Another stellar batch of photo’s from Andy Jacobsen!
Sometimes Jonah gets pissed when you spray him and the camera lens gets snow on it. And sometimes he laughs it off because it's sooo ridiculously deep. Notice the lens? This day was of the ridiculously deep kind.

We stumbled upon a great 'new' area this season. This zone has steep pine lanes and gets tons of snow.
And best of all nobody else is around
I would tell you where it is, but we promised some 'old timers' that were surprised to see us there that we wouldn't divulge it to anyone.
Jason's lips are sealed as well
Always good to get yourself out of the normal routine and see what you'll find

After three days in a row of breaking trail in deep snow and skiing until the sun went down we were pretty tired, but we knew it was our responsibility to ski all the pow that was still out there. Will Cardamone, Jake Sakson, and Andy Jacobsen were the crew for the day. We decided to ski some larger lines since we felt good with the snowpack and the sun decided to show it’s face.

The clouds decided to roll in so we headed to the trees. Just like the day before the sun would pop through once in awhile so we played the waiting game again until we got totally clouded in.
Andy getting a whole lot of snow to move.

Will taking photos as well with his new toy.
