Snake Creek

Heinz & I have finally been able to ride in the backcountry together! Whohoo! Over the weekend/holiday we skied a safe, mellow area called Snake Creek. Due to the fact that we received about 3 feet of snow in a 48 hour period., we wanted to stay off the gnarly, steep mountain grades, which are more pron to avalanches. Here are a few pics & flicks of our adventure.
(P.S. The video is not that great, but we try with what we have.)

Heinz is waist deep in snow!

There are no ski lifts back here.

A day off with Heinz and fresh powder, what more could a girl ask for?!
