« on: 01/15/13, 06:15 PM »

Fun tour in the clouds on Snoqualmie Mountain yesterday, to the top, down the Slot, around the north side, back up to the east ridge, and down the Phantom. Snow conditions = better in the Olympic Mountains, but still shreddable. 10-25cm of everything from light density pow to radiation baked wind skin overlying crust on all aspects, with better skiing quality on low angle terrain at all elevations. A few more details and photos here.

Love the photos.  The slot is such a fun line.

Glad to hear the Olympics are still in good condition... I hope they hold out.  I skied with GaryH and Jan in December and we enjoyed excellent conditions.  I think they mentioned you as a mighty trail breaker Smiley

I'm sure it was nice to have a break.  We should ski sometime  Grin

Great spot for photos, we had better visibility on a recent trip.
