Royal Mt

Anyone skiing Royal this year?
I've been twice so far, and the place always impresses me. From the friendly chats with owner Jim, to the lack of lift lines, to the untouched side country stuff, it's a gem.

I skied it this past Saturday with about a foot of light powder over a breakable crust over another foot or so of dense, old snow. Woods were tricky, crust was softer higher on the mountain, firmer as you go lower. Easy to find virgin lines in the trees, every run down!

Here's yours truly (I hope), on one of the more trampled tree runs, this one even is on the trail map.

And here's my son, after a too late turn that stranded him in a drainage...
