Tamara and I didn't really have any plans for the weekend, but after seeing that Brundage Mountain had 11" of fresh snow on Friday, I quickly texted my buddy, John, up in McCall, to see if he was up for a tour on Saturday.
We met up with John and Cody a little after 9AM and started up the Jug Mountain trail in the shade. As we moved up, we stopped to allow John and Cody trim back brush on the narrow sections of the trail. Eventually, we moved out of the shade into the bright sunshine. Everyone was smiling!

As we moved up the mountain, we were salivating at the prospect of skiing this great powder.
On our second lap, I neglected to transition my right ski boot from walk mode to ski mode and augured in good!

But, it was hard to not smile in these conditions!
After a couple of laps, it was time to head back down. A great day in the McCall backcountry!
