...and we’re back with another edition of the Jones Team Powder Report! And what a month April was...
Canada got snow and Andrew Hardingham knew where to find it. @Hardinghama’s advice for pow seekers: "Sometimes, if you listen very carefully, the powder will tell you where it’s friends are hiding!"
One of the main reasons the pow stays so good in AK is because of all the glacial ice. The glaciers keep the ground temps cold which offsets the warm radiation of the high spring sun angles that would otherwise zap the pow.

Yup, @ClaudiaAvon gives AK the thumbs up. She scored fun pow lines in Valdez this April.
On the totally opposite side of the world, but equally as far north as Alaska, Miikka Hast (@miikkaphoto) rode pow lines down to the Arctic ocean in Lyngen, Norway.
If you could only be in Mitch’s boots right here...tearing into a steep Dolomiti couloir.
Happy dayz in Switzerland this April. The Helvetic Backcountry crew shredded bluebird pow in Piz Bial.
Not exactly a pow shot, but @LizDaley caught a mesmerizing view of the Alps flying over Chamonix this month.
The pow didn’t last long in the Sierra but the water didn’t all go to waste. Jeremy Jones crushed an extremely wet pow line with yet another successful crossing of the Cushing pond at Squaw Valley. Photo - @SethLightcap
@RobKingwill was not alone flying through the Teton wilderness. He caught this unreal shot of a snowy owl this month.
