« on: 01/18/12, 08:56 PM »

Could not stand the pressure, so headed up to Mission to see how much the new snow had added.  In sheltered areas seemed like about seven inches, out in the open where the wind had worked it's magic there were places with 12-15.  Still not enough to ski everywhere with impunity, but sooooooo much better.  Stayed to low angle terrain, plenty of settling, I was able to ski cut several steeper test slopes which released.  No surprise, the weakness was at the old new interface.  Signs of some natural releases on east facing wind loaded slopes (40+).  Skiing was great.
