Ski run of the year

Cody and I took advantage of perfect conditions to ski the north face of Pioneer peak.  I didn't think it was possible to have snow this good from 6400 feet to sea level.  The miracle of the internet meant that other skiers also knew of the conditions from a first hand account a few days previous.  We shared the route with two other groups, probably a first in the history of this mountain.  We can't complain.  It was the absolutely the best ski run of the year.
