Instead of posting a separate TR for every patchskiing day, I'm going to put them in one thread. I hope that others will add to this. I also hope to provide views, creamed corn and soft-serve snow images, along with some dog stoke.
I'll post a few highlights from each day.

Mt. Sputnik, February 5, 2019

Mt. Sputnik Dawn Patrol. After shoveling snow the previous day and waking up to more snow overnight. I knew I would have to shovel more snow. I woke up early and headed out just after first daylight. First, I needed to follow Mt. Sputnik's policy: "If it is deep enough to shovel, it is deep enough to ski."

Mt. Sputnik, February 10, 2019

When a storm either closes roads or makes driving conditions dangerous, there is nothing better than having a home resort to ski.

The backside of Mt. Sputnik can be seen in the background. Fortunately, Mt. Sputnik has an open boundary policy.

We headed back to Monitor Pass since the skiing was so good and there were more lines to explore.

Sonora Pass Dusk Patrol, May 30, 2019

After hearing that Sonora Pass opened earlier in the day, my wife Michele encouraged me to head up to Sonora Pass for a dusk patrol recon mission.

Ebbetts Pass, June 2, 2019

We originally planned to ski somewhere off of the top of the pass. However, the large amount of snow meant that there was limited parking up on the pass. We came up with a plan B that had us starting from Kinney Reservoir and heading up a ridge to find some fine turns.
