March 5th, 2009 Van Epps
« on: 03/11/09, 12:30 PM »

Sometimes everything just works out, today was one of those days. Conditions overall were nearly perfect. Slopes below Van Epps were stable with about a foot of new. Closer to the trees and a bit out of the wind, new snow was nearing two feet deep. There were a couple red flags (small releases) in steeper rocky areas, so we stayed away from those.
