November 22, 2012, Kendall Lake Road
« on: 11/23/12, 05:40 PM »

Nothing too exciting, but if folks are thinking about Kendall, here is a coverage report: Really sparse before the barrier (and this may be gone now given the warmer weather and foot traffic). After the barrier it was nice -- I didn't have to take the skis off after that. After a few switchbacks it got pretty deep -- I could stick my pole in about two feet. There was a nice layer on the top, followed by a thin crusty layer about half way down. Thanksgiving day plans forced me to turn around before the lake. My guess is that there should be decent coverage for most, if not the entire route from the barrier to the lakes even with this warm mess we had today. It wouldn't hurt to bring a saw if you feel like doing a good deed on some of the brush. Of course, you can just wait a month or so (hopefully) and see it all  buried. No new blow downs to report.

All in all a great day to be out; nice snow on the trees, views of Kendall Knobs and Rampart Ridge and some fun skiing.

Nice! 

Was curious how things were shaking out there, thanks.
