In two days it will officially be summer, Friday 21st June. The longest day of the year, and from then on it’s all downhill to snow and winter as the days shorten. But in some areas winter hasn’t even ended yet!

Powderchasers are calling for significant snow accumulation in the northern Rockies, Montana, and Alberta.

With the potential for up to a foot of fresh pow, how about celebrating the onset of summer with a few backcountry fresh tracks?
