Powder Mountain Report: Gear Test Week Day 4

A blisteringly bright sun rose on Powder Mountain for the fourth day of Gear Test Week and signaled a great day ahead. As the second to last day of testing, skiers were starting to exhibit the signs of leg fatigue—and maybe a few hangovers—but this did not stop them from rallying next year’s toys on the packed powder chop that was welcome leftovers from the powder day earlier in the week.

Some ventured farther afield to hike James Peak, Powder Mountain’s unique region that promises open powder slopes to those who commit to a short cat ride and hike or skin. This is where adventurous testers sniffed out the remaining untracked snow. Some were content to enjoy the goods closer to home base.
