Alpine Meadows Backcountry 1/6/10
With a 30 percent chance of rain after 10 today its no big surprise that it was perfectly sunny all day. The abundant sunshine coupled with above average temperatures made for another beautiful California day. After taking a few runs off Summit Chair my friend Oscar and I ventured out into Ward Valley to see what we could find. Oddly enough we found perfect smooth corn on one of our favorite south-facing zones. A few other adventurous individuals did the same thing the day before, but in such a large area as this, there was more than enough room left for us to enjoy virtually track free skiing.
