Winter 2014-Taking what we can get

It has been a tough season this year. Similar to recent years past, the Wasatch has been painfully subsisting on a low snow diet. With limited coverage, this past week's storm cycle was like rain in a desert. Knowing of the persistent weak layers deep in the structure, yesterday morning we sought very low angle powder.  Upon nearing our destination, our hopes of soft deep turns were dashed by a 1" rime crust.  Regardless, we made the most of it, finding improved conditions amidst the tight trees.
