Colorado is reaping its just deserts lately. After several years of meager conditions, in spite of man’s meddling, God is sending a thrilling end to a solid season. Even in the parched Sierra, the storms continue to dust the land, but those same storms seem to be saving their full strength for Colorado. Witness a recent avalanche, the benign kind where one got caught but nobody was hurt; lucky that day. Great skiing and avalanche danger go hand in hand. To think otherwise can be a deadly self deception.

Nonetheless, that’s when the best skiing is. Backcountry Talk files the following tasty examples.
