May powder is not easy to get given the high sun angle. But if you go on a cool day shortly after the snowfall, and ski steep north slopes at high elevation, it is possible. I went to the northern Sawtooths this weekend.

Saturday featured snowsqualls:

Followed by sunshine a few minutes later:

Some of the squalls were so intense I had to hunker down:

But was then skiing sunny powder shortly afterward:

Was thinking I should have brought the fishing pole:

Today was bluebird:

Highlight was skiing deep powder in a remote setting, ~10 miles from the trailhead. I was solo so I skied conservative runs:

Could see my tracks from miles away:
