East of the crest just keeps giving!. this time a lap each on the south slopes of Flying Squirrel and Pine Marten. Trees where mostly bombed out but the open areas where outstanding.

Still considerable danger. Storm layers above 5,000' are just as reactive as 2 days ago, but now with several more inches of new snow on top. Ski cuts produced thick 1'+ slabs on the same layer as 2 days ago as well.

Again no pics from me.

Good bumping into you again Scott.  That zone is seriously fun with a great combo of pillows, trees and fall-line skiing.

Thanks for adding the great photos to my otherwise useless thread, Ben and John!

Brian, stoked you guys liked the area so much that you decided to come back and stay a while. Sorry I couldn't make it for breakfast. Hope your Sunday went well.

You missed some damn good bacon oatmeal!  Sunday was great; got in three more laps before packing up and retreating to the relative comfort of a warm, dry car.

nope, just a vest over a shell, one of my many backcountry fashion faux pas.  it was quite windy & stormy at the top of the run and i didn't feel like taking the shell off to add a layer for warmth while we dug a snowpit and transitioned.
