    We got winter weather last week @ Mammoth, fresh cold powder to start, and not turning to spring conditions 'til late Friday. I skied mostly solo all week, hiked a lot, and because there was so little competition for first tracks, took a ton of pics. Here are some of the photos chronologically, by day, Monday.

    Gotta get in shape, @Rainbow Jenny is expecting me to keep up touring next week! In reality, a lot of these areas are still skiable, but not maintained or patrolled and are signed as such. They are use at your own risk and should be treated as backcountry. MMSP did tell me they had blasted the Dragon Tuesday morning, even though it is not patrolled. Plus, these are all pretty short hikes, ten minutes max.

    I think I need to talk @Andy Mink and @Philpug into a road trip to Mammoth.

    @Tricia Sounds like an RV opportunity to me... :thumb: (hitchhiker thumb) even though I approach from the south, and will likely be there anyway. FOJ2018! IMG_20180418_145320586.jpg
