Late May Pipeline Powder

A few others had the same idea before us since rain in the valley still means snow at the upper elevations this time of year.  We found tracks in and out of the Pipeline but inconveniently, the booter had vanished with the swirling winds.   Both Jason and I appreciated the contrast of the deep green valleys, white snow, and dark clouds that were messing with the sun.  All in all it was quite a beautiful morning.  It's the end of May and above 9000 feet on northerly aspects the skiing is still quite good.  

Not too bad for the end of May in a dry year...

Getting down to the skiing

It was almost "powder"
