First few days on the mountain, and I was skiing under sunny skies and 55 degree weather.  They still had plenty of snow, but it was melting fast.

Clouds started rolling in towards the end of my trip, making for some nice early morning cloud cover.

Before my afternoon flight, I left the camera at home and played in powder the whole morning.

Copper ended up getting over 27 inches that week.  I guess I should have extended my trip.  I may come back here in April.  There should still be plenty of snow.
