5 Pieces of Evidence Ski Season Doesn't Want to Leave

The winter of 2010/2011 provided us with some of the best conditions we have ever seen at CMH. With the lack of a proper spring, it was a snowy start to the summer season. Luckily for us, the snow has melted away from most of our favorite hiking locations, and made for some spectacular scenery along the way. Sitting here halfway through August, ski season is far from most of our minds. But luckily for us, it seems as though mother nature is still thinking about last winter, and we can only hope that she brings it again! Here are five pictures that serve as left over evidence of a great heli-ski season.
