After the 16″ dump over the weekend, it has just kept on snowing here in the San Juans, for a total of 30″ of fresh snow by Wednesday! Of course I’ve been out every day shredding every inch of the powder. Spring powder fever has a similar intensity as early season powder fever, except that this time of year the stoke comes from knowing that it’s all going to melt soon.

We lapped this perfect, long heel-side snow wave several times; I almost felt like I was in Costa Rica.

Is it April? Or February? I can’t tell the difference.
