@4ster I kinda envy you this snow. Yesterday weather forecast was promising 70cm for tomorrow... by today it's down to 30-35cm so we will see what we will really get on the end. I hope they are wrong and it will be 1m+ but somehow I think it's just wishful thinking.

Don’t be too envious. It was really nice for a few days then we got an East wind that scoured & crusted things up. We are still skiing but the Backcountry is kind of done for a while.
early November skiing is always a bonus around here. Looks like we may have some weather coming next week.

If you're not back down to bare dirt I have no sympathy.

Very jealous of all that snow. We had a good start here in the upper Midwest, but then most of it melted in the last few weeks.
I did just spend a week XC skiing with my kid’s high school XC team in West Yellowstone, MT. 70 high schoolers, 21 hours each way on 2 busses, 10 coaches, it sure was a big to do.

Since it was groomed and tracked, and I was using my skin skis for classic 6A8EED87-EADB-4186-BE6E-A836EA935087.jpeg D2855F31-C2DB-47B2-97D0-95E5B606410A.jpeg , I guess it counts as the ’skin track’:

Got out this morning to enjoy some fresh snow on a skinny little hiking trail that meanders next to the American River. Beautiful morning, not even the plow truck had been up the highway. We got some good snow a week ago, but then it rained, but the snow last night/this morning was enough to cover up the ice.
