Snow storms – especially those that leave behind more than 5 feet of powder in a week’s time – allow for conditions we all dream of. The conditions are amplified by the early-morning sounds and sights at Alpine. Who doesn’t love the sweet alarm clock of avalanche control, or the barking chatter of happy patrol dogs as they gallop through the powder? The sunrise at Alpine Meadows is something everyone should see, especially after storm clouds break to reveal a crystal clear, cloudless powder day.
Here are some photos from today that anyone can appreciate.
