Miracle March is coming to a close and, despite our current stormy weather, the Spring transition is in full swing for our weather and snowpack. But, what is corn? And, how does one harvest it? This episode dives into how our snowpack transforms in the Spring and how we can assess whether conditions have aligned for a beautiful day of backcountry corn skiing. It’s not too complicated, but it ain’t that simple either! In this show, you’ll find tips on how to get it while the getting’s good.
Thanks as always to you for listening! On next week’s show, we’ll talk more about the Spring-specific ski mountaineering gear we bring for bigger objectives (that’s right, the SHARPS!) and how to use them appropriately to manage the risk of steep frozen ascents. Stay tuned!
