Spring Corn is Here!

Spring is definitely here, and with the season's change comes all of the toys that have been stowed away most of the winter- mountain bikes, climbing racks and fishing rods are all getting dusted off, but the spring skiing is really going off right now.  The Tioga Road just opened up to the entrance station into Tuolumne Meadows, which makes for incredible access to a number of classic moderate corn snow decents.  Today I hopped in the truck to see how the snowpack is looking up there and had a great day making turns down False White Mountain and the ridge of Gaylor Peak.  Things are melting out fast though, so it might only be a couple more weeks before the skis get put in the closet...
