VIDEO: After what seems like months without fresh snow (it was really only three weeks), winter returned to Summit County this morning with on again, off again storms across the county. Z Griff and the Weston Snowboards crew took advantage of warm temps and bluebird skies for an educational ride trip with Colorado Snowboard Guides, a local outfit that specializes in backcountry travel and safety. First up: the ins and outs of snowpack analysis at Mayflower Gulch.
