Good day at DakotaGood day at Dakota
Current Conditions Thursday, April 29, 2010

Three of us went up to Dakota Ridge today, two of us on skis, and one on snowshoes. It was a great day. We went north of the eastern loop, and consequently higher in elevation on the ridge. The snow was soft on top and easy to climb in but fast enough to make downhill fun.
