Snoqualmie Pass - April 28, 2012
« on: 04/28/12, 06:40 PM »

Trees were dripping at 5400' in the fog at 10am.

Scrapped plans, didn't drop -



Skinning at 6:30am felt almost as mushy as when the rain (+snow) and mother sun left off on Friday. No evidence of freezing Friday night - counter to what was forecast. Circa 5" of new, heavy and compacted.

Retraced (skied) my up on the way down -

albeit in fog. Short sun break didn't last. Strong solar, little sun. Fun nonetheless. 

Mush is good, good for snow creatures!


seriously, that was a stability test.

Thanks for the tip, Stefan: you solved my quandary). If it didn't freeze last night it surely won't tonight... N
