More snow for the mountains
on March 20, 2008
More snow on tap for the mountains. This time of year we usually get hammered with more snow as spring storms roll across the desert, bringing rain to the lower elevations and creamy spring pow to the mountains. Many locals this time of year start getting a little "Powder Weary", but, remember this: it will be summer soon. The spring equinox is upon us. Soon the snow will only be a memory and we'll be daydreaming of faceshots. They're out there now. Get on it. That line you've been waiting to ride all year? Now is the perfect time to do it.
Anyway, I'm not going to beat you over the head about it. If it's that hard to get you out the door and to lace up your boots, then fine. More powder for me.
