AVILA ,LAURENTIAN SNOW PATCH JUNE 29

Noticed the snow pile at Avila over the last few months when driving by and remembered they had a event planned so went over to check it out. Did not have the boards with me so slid on my shoes. Does that count for a day on the snow :-) . Temps about 90 F.

I drove by today and by chance, I had my skis in the car. Not sure if the mountain crew did anything to the snow, all the part in your picture with the dirty snow had pretty much melted away. It probably didn't helped that it was freaking hot today. Slightly cooler over the snow.

:lol: I got an idea for a TR, so part 1 of my mission is done. :mrgreen:

Oh yeah, I wasn't the only one. Someone else joined me, but we were both disappointed. As mentioned above, it melted really fast in 2-days. Its true that it was 90F today, 100+ if you factor the humidity.
