Gettin’ rowdy in the backcountry….
High pressures and warm temperatures in the Aspen zone has made finding soft snow nearly impossible of late. Lucky for us the backcountry options around Aspen are extensive, to say the least. North facing aspects with plenty of tree protection was the only place we expected to find snow unaffected by the scorching sun. Turns out we were right!
Recently some of the Rocky Mountain Underground family and I headed to a zone that fit the profile. I’ll let the photos do the talking.
