April 13, 2013, Extremely reactive Heather Ridge
« on: 04/14/13, 08:40 AM »

North slopes of Heather ridge were extremely reactive. We set off pretty good 1 ft. slab on a convex roll next to us that slid a few hundred feet. We bailed up then cautiously looked on the south side and found very different snow - no cracking or slabs. Stuck to meadow skipping low angle without any roll overs. Snowing heavily all day and got progressively warmer. Pretty darn good powder though for mid-April!

Choose yer slopes carefully, or hit the area (we talked to a guy in the parking lot who set off a small slide in the area and saw some other people set off a pretty goodun).

Jim,  Great to see your post. As your dear sis has probably shared, I'm not doing much skiing these days. Really sorry I couldn't get out to be your "action model". Please keep posting your beautiful photos to give me the stoke to see my "kneehab" through to functional success. And by success I meanskiing powder with you again one day. Keep getting after it and smiling. Make turns for me. I'm counting on you!
