It's Sunday morning at 11:15 and the Carson Spur is closed due to heavy snow. That's a great way to end a low snow year. Kirkwood has received close to three feet of new snow in the last week. Unfortunately I've been stuck in my study hacking together a prototype for a new startup idea. Hmmm... - PHP coding or skiing in fresh powder.
The last two summer seasons had trouble getting going on the traditional Kirkwood "start of summer" July 4th date, but there should be no problem this year. There's still some great backcountry skiing at the higher elevations and hopefully I'll make it up there once more in the next couple of weeks to give a first hand report.
