Everyone who ever told me that Fairy Meadow was a “must-do” was right. The place rocks. Joey, Sean, Brad Buyers, Christy, and I joined a group of 12 Canadians (including Greg Franson and Jesse Berg from our Bugs to Rogers Traverse last year) for a week up at the hut in the Adamant Mountains. We finally got a bit of the skiing we missed out on in Aspen this year.
The five of us from Aspen skied all seven days at the hut, logging some 5,000 – 7,000 vertical feet each day. The weather was mixed, which was a blessing because it brought a steady flow of powder and things never got too spring-like. Better yet, the snow stability was very good, and when combined with the huge snow year the area had this season, our long days barely allowed us the time to see and ski everything we wanted.
But we sure tried.
Stay tuned for more! And thanks to Greg Franson and Bluebird Guides for making it all happen
