February 17 - Snowbird - Rib and back feeling much better after last month’s crash.

February 20 - Snowbird

March 20 - Sugar Bowl - Half day before driving home in the rain
March 27 - Haines, AK - Cat trip to Old Faithful for wet pow laps. Waiting on weather.
March 30 - Haines, AK - Got out for ~4 heli runs from the airport. Sadly it has been too hot for any soft snow to survive.
March 31 - Haines, AK - 9 runs from the airport. Lots of sunny corn and some chalky stuff.
April 2 - Haines, AK - 9-ish runs from the airport again. Bit of new snow helped soften things up, but still really warm out there. Hopefully this next storm cycle can reset things for the next group!
April 23 - Squaw - 20” storm made a day trip worth the effort. Bluebird and great conditions!
