We got skunked trying to head up to Paradise today, they never opened the road because there was TOO MUCH SNOW! Whhaatttt?! Since we were already way out there, we decided to try some back roads we've never explored before. More of a cross-country ski trip than a downhill trip, but it was nice to be soaking up the snow, and we did get at least 2 miles of slow coasting along our skin tracks on the way back down. We kept saying it felt like a scenic train ride, you could look side to side as you slowly moved along the track, and the snow crunching under our skis even sounded a little bit like a train.
