Berthoud Pass - 4.27.2011

Following the 2+ feet of snow that fell in the Front Range mountains last Monday night through Wednesday morning, Erik, Matt and I went up to Berthoud Pass for a morning mission. Well aware that the April sun would soon be baking all aspects, and had already had a strong effect on southerly aspects we quickly headed towards northerly facing terrain. We skied a long lap through the 100s, then a lap on the west side, followed by two laps in the 80s. The 80s are amazing right now, its really awesome to see what kind of an effect an extremely above average year like this can have covering up lots of large, pointy rocks.
