Powder day at Winter Park and Mary Jane

We skied with Donna and JJ again, this time at Winter Park. After doing a somewhat icy run on the Winter Park mountain, we decided to aim for the Parsenn's Bowl. We had to take a few chair lifts to get over there, but it was worth it -- there was deep fresh powder above treeline that was amazing to ski through. Pretty much everywhere we skied the rest of the day (in the bowl and on the Mary Jane mountain) had better cover than that first run.

JJ and I spent a lot of time in the trees. The powder there was up to our knees in places and when we fell the snow seemed to swallow us whole.

After another great day skiing we headed back to Boulder. Dinner at the Sink then dessert at Glacier Ice Cream.
