12" wet fresh snow at 3000', 18" wet fresh at 3700'.  Some hidden creeks and cat tracks but no rock scratches for me.  Lots of skinners and hikers.

Dawn patrol reporting in... Still fun, recommend lots of acreage underfoot, pass level has turned rain like or not quite snow anyway little earlier than forecast. The 186 swallowtail was the way to go for this kind of work

Update what do you know push post and the fat flake start falling again... Maybe I should keep doing that.

We had the whole of Silver Fir to ourselves today, but for the solo skier on the skin track we never saw. The steeps from Inspiration to Hogwild had a high shrubbery to snow ratio, so we topped out via Outback and skied same back to the Tanners Pass cat track and the run underneath the chair. The top part of Outback was steep enough to get some good turns, as was the first bit of the chair run, but everything below was too heavy/flat. Rain/snow line was about midway up Tanners.
