After completing trail marking on the Nisqually Vista loop, toured up to Glacier Vista.   Fantasic views and zero wind.    Dropping down the gentle slopes into Edit creek found wind/sun crust that created perfect "trap crust" conditions for the old skool narrow skiis (55mm waist) I was on Monday.   Jump and step turns worked, but not much else.

You'd be the right guy that handle that trap crust on old school Nordic boards, Randy.
I'd have been installing craters all the way bridge.
Thanks for the info.
Pray for snow.
