COLORADO - A three-day storm cycle had just concluded so we were cautious about the avalanche danger.

I joined Jon Kedrowski near Vail Pass for a couple laps in the backcountry.  We chose a conservative line on low angle terrain.

The departing storm could be seen to the south drifting away.  The wind was light and that's always good after a heavy snow.
