Catch the last of the powder, if there is any, with a quick trip around the pass well before the freezing level shoots to 9K. I have a couple ideas and plan on travelling pretty quickly uphill tomorrow. Regular partner/s may or may not be present so looking for additional to be sure! Planning a 3hr round trip and I'll scope conditions tonight up at the pass.
Carpool, meet Seattle folk at Exit 18 Issaquah around 5 if possible. Sunrise is 7:10 so there will be light 20 mins before if its clear. Headlamp advised!
PM if interested.
Edit: Freezing level is 9K not 7K so better be early to get the 3K morning level.
"Freezing levels climb to near 9000 feet by Thursday afternoon with light winds and a shift to low level easterly flow across the passes. This will help to maintain cooler air in the passes with mild temperatures at higher elevations."
No, I'm not a telephone solicitor. I ski with my heels free.
Telemetry was showing cold enough top to bottom but in the bowl it was showing 34 this morning (on my watch on pack) and warmer once in the sun. I'd say most slopes exposed to the sun are going to point release and sluff etc today and will be interesting to see if any shady areas stay OK. We did indeed find powder and plenty of it to go around too! Hope it stays for the rest of you since its a barren spell we are going into.
