FRISCO — After the few gray mornings, the sun burst forth with a vengeance Tuesday morning. As if to apologize for the short absence, the colors practically screamed out, “here I am!” For me, the timing is kind of funky right now, but if I race out of the house right after feeding my son and making sure he gets on the school bus, I can just make it down to one of my “local” spots, in this case the first turnout along Dillon Dam Road past the gate. At the cusp of the seasons, the snow is quite different. With 12 hours of sunlight, there’s a big melt-freeze cycle going on, even out on the flats, and the wind sculpted the new stuff into a nice layer of sastrugi.
