Skied a chute off of Sifton's south face. Easy scramble/boot pack up to and along the ridge to the chute, although it looks as though you could almost skin to the chute entrance via the north glacier. Top of the chute had some good snow but the bottom 3rd where the chute steepened was not friendly to my fat skis.

The next day got a surprise 20 at the asulkan parking lot which turned into 30cm at 2000m near the mushroom people in the asulkan valley. Face shots till the lower section which was skied out only the day before. The new snow was already reactive with numerous small slides caused by tree bombs with minor propagation observed in the gully we skied.

"As we all know, the true driving force behind every early morning wake up is not necessarily safety, but the overpowering drive to be sitting on a patio by 1 pm, intoxicated, and spraying loudly about the morning's adventure."
