Noting the high avy forecast, three of us headed for our favorite tree skiing in Yodelin. The melting snow at the car belied the predicted freezing level of 1500 ft, as did the occasional sunbreaks in the morning. But the snow still seemed good in the shade so we remained optimistic. Our first run was decent, despite the wind effect we found even in the trees. The snow for the last third of the run was getting heavy. On the second run we moved to a more northly aspect and found some delightful snow. The temperature had also dropped, so that bottom third was now perfect turning snow. Evening obligations and a tired party member turned us homeward.

Not being on any suspect slopes, we didn't dig a pit. We did get several whomps while skinning up a wind-effected 10 degree slope, a good reminder of the general instability.

Not much company; another small party with a dog were skiing the west side of the bowl.
