Late May Powder Day

Jeff and I were pleasantly surprised to find some fresh powder this morning up in Yankee Boy Basin. Not a whole lot of powder, but powder nonetheless. The surface below was fairly soft and the new 4-5 inches of snow was pretty well bonded, providing some great cruisey late season pow turns.

[+] The flat light was compensated by the gentle cruiser terrain and soft snow. This was a really mellow line, and I even had Reggaemylitis in my head as I rode down. (Compliments of Peter Tosh).
