January 28, Diamond Head
« on: 01/28/12, 08:39 PM »

Skied 3 laps on the NE face today.  Generally found a breakable crust from either rain or sun.  Higher up there was some wind scoured/packed spots.  Skinning was pretty easy.  Downhill travel wasn't bad.  Yeah, the crust was under the fresher snow but we knew it was there and skied accordingly.  Otherwise the skiing was pretty good.  Did two runs down the main slope then one down the open area skiers left of the main slope.  That one was plain great.  Short sides lip through the trees brought us to the trail and a short trip to the car.   Coverage everywhere was great.  Snowed on and off all day and was fairly windy up high.  As we were getting into the car to leave it started to ran.  Dinner and beer at Rositas in Green Lake.  Will post some pics later.

A little decomposed but we could tell they were pretty recent.  I'd seen your note looking into conditions and wondered if they were yours.  By the time we got done there was a good rut.
