3/23 mt Catherine
« on: 03/24/12, 09:32 AM »

Skied 3 laps of cold consistent powder in the north facing old growth off Catherine yesterday. ECT 5' deep to solid thick buried crust layer yielded no results on a 40deg NNE under shaded canopy @ approximately 4500'. Only minor loose snow surface sluffing on steeper sections. Really good skiing, and spectacular views. Had the Mt to ourselves.
PSA: North facing shaded slopes are holding great snow right now.

No, I'm not a telephone solicitor.  I ski with my heels free.

Dang!  All I needed yesterday was a nudge and I would've tipped away from work and into the snow.  We could have had another drifter reunion.  Glad you got out, Ed.

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.
