Not nearly as good as a few weeks ago...

The good news is that the ice underneath the new snow was smooth all the way to Muir Smiley
It would have been good skiing if we didn't have icy vertigo Roll Eyes
Snowed 2" to 3" while we were there.
Should be good if you can see.
Light non wind effected snow.
Careful on the trail up to pebble creek.  It was very icy with new snow covering the ice.

I like the photos.  I love early snow season... always quite beautiful.  It looks to me like your trip was worth it just to be in a beautiful place and excellent exercise.  I am itching to get out.

That's what I kept telling myself on the way down Wink

Thanks for those photos.  I was curious to see just how much effect all that rain had had on the early snow.

Hey - I recognize some of those Panorama Point rocks - from my last "ski by braille" trip.  What a difference from two + weeks ago.

Photos 2 thru 6 on your Facebook series have some crazy cool sideways lighting, as does first part video. Maybe more fun to look at than be there?

How many takes did your ski tripods in photo #1 take? That was artsy.

During the vid the "probing" for the one special point in the wall to wall ice that won't land you on your ass is funny - been there done that. Cheap MRNP asphalt and refreeze cycles are just as bad a combo as caffeine and alcohol.

Good report.  Amazing how much difference a few weeks of the wrong weather makes.
