This AZ winter will be another to remember, and with so much snow on the ground, we will likely be boarding the North side of the Kachinas’ into June.
McKenna’s third snowboard ride.
JE slays it, right before some steep tight chutes that gave us a little more excitement than we bargained for…
… the excitement came in the form of steep powder chutes that were too tight for turns. We both did a cartwheel to slow down – and rode it out!
JE has a fully stocked snow cave up in the Kahinas’. It’s now loaded with sleeping gear, food, and stove. I left my alarm clock up there where it makes since to wake up early for a full day of pow.
Sometimes, however, it is best to sleep in and let the sun warm up the firm snow – maybe build a kicker while it softens up.
