One annoyance is that while we were waiting in line for "avalanche control" a film crew got to do four untracked laps. One or two would have been reasonable, but four was excessive. Ski patrol even said that the film crew was slowing down their operations.

After the day was over, we checked the status of Carson Pass and it was open. But when we got there, we ended up waiting in a line of cars for 105 minutes. Later I learned that one of my coworkers had put his Tesla into a snowbank, and that was one source of the delay.
On Saturday, we went to Powderhouse Peak. Damn did it live up to it's name. We did 4 laps from top to bottom for a total of 6.5k vertical feet. It was exhausting, but the snow was so good. I didn't take any pictures that day, because it's all glades.
