We left town at a leisurely 7am and headed for Copper Mountain.

We were on our skis at 9:45 and heading up Copper.

There was a bit of a sun crust under some fresher snow. After digging a pit, we decided to ski the same run that Bob and I had chased powder on earlier this winter. The snow was a little different then- pure powder.

Today, the snow was a little strange. But Tom was working it really nicely.

Joel makes all snow look easy. We're not sure, but we think this particular turn might have been his billionth tele turn.

Bob and I skied up to tag the summit. Between Idaho's healthy winter, and lots of wind, the cornice is looking pretty manly.
