231 days...

...of winter.

According to the local television station, winter ended yesterday, after 231 days.
It has snowed here in Anchorage for the past couple of days but it hasn't amounted to much, so we drove an hour north to Hatcher Pass this morning, where we knew we could find some good skiing.  We spent a couple hours on our classic skis, skiing on hard wax.  It was definitely one of the nicest days of the "winter".

Nothing wrong with the grooming this morning.

Powder snow / hard wax conditions.

When we started skiing there were only a few cars in the parking lot, but by the time we were done the parking lot was completely full of skiers, and more were arriving and parking down the road.
