I don't care what anybody says. I love snow. 
I'm biased though. Horribly biased, and its getting worse. I think it would be hard for someone to convince me otherwise.
I don't care if it makes driving a nightmare, or that I have to wake up early and shovel off the car. I don't mind when powder drifts into my jacket. Or even when trees drop pillows onto my head. The inconvenience is just a reminder of how fleeting the moment is.
I've been spending a lot of time in the snow. Good snow. Hidden away in the St. Joe Mountains of Northern Idaho thePeak Adventures crew, led by guide and owner Ryan Stanley, have been skiing new lines off a many unnamed ridge. Every run is in fresh high mountain snow. We a fortunate that, by sheer luck of topography, our snow has been protected from the sun and wind. Every track laid down is marking yet another first decent. The eraser comes quick though, as the next storm is already there. 

I'll let the video tell the true tale.
