November 21, 2009 Bullion Cement
« on: 11/21/09, 10:29 PM »

SkiPrince, Mosetick and I found great coverage and plenty of fluff for this early in the year.  We only saw 6 others all day, and had an unintended highlight of sking out by headlamp after the "one more lap" syndrome struck.  Hi Murray and Todd!

A compression test just below the saddle in Cement Basin facing SE at 6130' showed some collapse at C6 5" down, then rock solid to the ground.  The 5" crust from the rain slid when we skied off the ridge.  Great snow in Cement Basin for about 500', then the lower crust reappeared under avy debris from Thursday.   N side of Bullion at twilight was superb.

FIRST PHOTOS I've ever posted!

Nice trip.  We were up skiing the resort on Sunday in wild weather.  Good call on the day.
