Black Iron Bowl – Dihedral Chute

Black Iron Bowl - Dihedral Chute

The upside of April showers is...fresh tracks on the hike-to terrain. Did the walk up the ridge to the top of Black Iron Bowl's Dihedral Chute. This is just such a fun, classic line, and getting it with untracked powder was oh-so-nice. What a beautiful day this was! There's hardly anybody on the mountain right now, so there was no rush to get untracked snow even on the lift-served stuff. New storm supposed to be blowing in tonight, so likely more fresh snow on the way.
