October 14, 2010, Muir snowfield
« on: 10/14/10, 08:47 PM »

Beautiful weather, a bit breezy.  More of the summer snow is melting, the white dusting from Sunday evening is also melting, exposing the brown dust, but still no cupping and icyness.   We skied 8900'-7500' on an inch or so of slush, much better skiing than we expected on the skin up.   Checking the telemetry I'm glad we did not head for Muir and the 50+mph average winds, yikes.

When we left at 3:30PM, the sky was still blue with light cirrus clouds just forming over the summit; by the time we were halfway from Greenwater toward Enumclaw it was pouring rain!

I wondered how it went when it was raining here at 3:00.  Glad you guys were able to enjoy some blue skies and it looks like Chris was enjoying the turns.
