Lucky me, the storm just happened to coincide with my last ski bus Thursday. An entire day of fresh tracks on new fallen snow? I was so happy I could hardly stand it.
|There was even a lift line on Thursday!|
This season on Hood, powder days have been few and far between. So a huge snowstorm brought the snowriders out in droves. We actually had lift lines on a weekday! That never happens.

But the snow dumped and the wind blew all day, assuring fresh tracks for everyone. I teamed up with my friend Kathy. She skied the blue runs, while I ducked down every bowl off of Express. And then went back for seconds. And then thirds. Oh it was awesome!
|A shot of Four Bowl for my friend Dean|
Kathy's husband Dean, a good ski buddy of mine, was stuck at work. The best run of the day was found at Four Bowl, our favorite trail. To be sure he didn't totally miss out, I took a photo of the trail sign. I later emailed it to Dean, telling him "Four Bowl missed you today." (I'm such a brat!)
Ahhh.....charging down steep slopes of dry, fluffy snow with powder spraying my face. There's no better way to celebrate spring.
