5 days, 96"...Only @Jay!
I had been in the deep. I had been in the deeper. Nothing compared to this late season crusher at Jay. Ninety-six inches fell in just five days. Avalanche warnings off the backside aren't something common even by Jay standards. The mission was clear. The only choice was to accept.
Trammed up to the Big Jay gates, looking down on the most snow I'd ever seen. The Valentine's Day massacre seemed a mere dusting compared to this. Snowshoed out to the bounds of sanity and beyond. Strapped in. Thanked God. Let rip.
If heaven is a place on Earth, we found it that day. I can close my eyes and find it ever since.
