A Deep, Snowy Winter in the Northwest
January 18, 2017
It has been a great winter of cool temps here in the Pacific Northwest. It all got started in early December. The snow and cool temps have been really consistent. From resort riding to backcountry travels, the fun has not stopped.
I rode Mt. Baker the first Sunday it opened. We had great snow, but it came with low visibility.
We rode Stevens Pass the day they opened the backside up for the first time of the season. My camera was dead before 1pm when it opened. Maybe some things are better left undocumented, left to our memories.
Alpental opening day, like the others, did not disappoint. We ended up getting first tracks down International. Again, undocumented.
And then there's touring. Here are some photos and video from our tour out Commonwealth Basin across from Snoqualmie West.
Hope your'e finding time to enjoy the snow!
