Thanks for your trip report. Out of curiosity, did Slot also have a 3 foot crown extending from wall to wall at the lower exit (mandatory jump) last weekend?

It's been pretty much the same throughout the Eastern Sierras Bridgeport to Lone pine. STELLER! If I could figure out how to post pictures from my phone I would but it's too much for my little brain to figure out.

On my phone from the send screen, I slide right all the way to “Copy I Cloud Link”. Wait for that to happen and then paste it into the body of your post. I can’t usually get greedy and do very many...

The day started with fog, then a bit of sun then clouds and a repeat from 11:30-2pm.I started climbing up Alpine trail. Snow from the base of the Central Express lift. There was a grass/rock section but plenty of room to climb. At the top of the lift they were unloading ski patrol packs. I decided to ski down Golden Nugget trail. Bad choice. The trail narrows down but has numerous rain drainage lines.  It would have been more fun on the Alpine trail. The Ski Patrol team was loading the lift with their toboggans. They  are working on the replacement of the Holiday lift.

LBD420 was a good session and properly kind
plenty of slope to let the big skis make tracks.
snow held it’s glaunch where it wasn’t pounded

It was one of those lovely cloudy sunny days, with light rain at the parking lot and shocking warmth and calm up above. From Camp Muir down to Panorama Point was all good skiing - supportable crust with just a thin layer of softening fresh stuff on top. At least that's what I found around 1pm. Areas below that have more typical April sticky mush. Steeper slopes also are lacking the supportable crust -- I took some turns down into the Nisqually Chute and aborted as the mush got too deep (worsening with the descent). No major instabilities observed though, just lots of snowballs.

Also... use skin wax! (I didn't and it wasn't fun.)

And also... apparently the gate stayed open all last night, but signs were still up today saying that it will be closed and locked at 5:30pm.

There was a big crowd, all lots were full including E & D. I started skiing about 10 o'clock which worked out about right. That was about the time that everything softened up  The vsibility was pretty poor right off the bat with lots of fog on top. In fact, for my first run  I went down Upper Ferks treeline  because it was the only place I could see .  Visibility got much better during the day, in fact there were a lot of sucker holesi which got bigger as the day progressed .  If you didn't like the visibility you could just stand around for a few minutes and wait for a break in the fog .  The snow was pretty darn good. Nice soft forgiving spring snow.  It did not get  sticky except for a couple of places lowdown when I was heading out around 4 o'clock.
here was a big crowd on the sun deck listening to  live music.  There were lines but they weren't too bad and went down about 12:30. The last couple hours of the day had no lines anywhere.  No food at Campbell Basin Lodge, only open for snacks and drinks.  Ferkberg was not groomed but skied well, however the bumps were getting big.

If you are heading up tomorrow a few places that we'll be's nice are Paradise Bowl main run, right down off of upper Autobahn  Upper Autobahn itself was not bad. Snort Elk Bowl was good.  Northway in general skied really well.  I even did the bumps at the bottom right underneath the chair,  Some of my favorite chutes from years past really delivered. The run of the day was Powder Bowl   I especially liked going left off the chair, around the backside and down the snow cannon chute.

NORTHWAY IS CLOSED SUNDAY today was it.

Fun-Factor  4/5
Stoke-o-Meter  4/5  cause the steep stuff went off

If I was in the correct drop just skier right of Westface.  Funny entrance, but fun. Looking at the trail map, makes it look like its between 75 and West? But when I was following the signs felt the way I indicated?  Not totally sure there are a multitude of drops! I really love KT-22!  Number 1 chair in North America!😀 And definitely the best fall line bumps!

Just got home great trip. Ready to go back.

Where is Johnny Mosleys run compared to the west face? Last time I was there I had trouble finding Cornice 2😳
