Warmer temps and no wind plus nine inches of new snow made today even better than yeaterday.  We skied a few runs of stable 12-16" soft fluff on north and south facing slopes.  And we met another Pavel!

We toured just south of Stevens; met plenty of happy friends enjoying the pow.

Similar sentiments about the snow. Fun and friendly snow where we went hunting for stable snow. Found occasional ~Q2 shears ~4-6" down near ridgetops, propagation zilch. As expected, the afternoon snow was coming in with increased density.
