April 30th, 2013 -- Powder at Alpental
« on: 04/30/13, 09:59 AM »

Mostly shin deep on the way up. some flowing over the knees on the way down.  Some beard shots, no goggle shots. 

Chair was running off and on -- But no patrollers came up -- I was staying well away of the usual runouts -- which did have large debris piles.

Headed up after work, very gloppy on the lower mountain.
Snow started to change just before the top of one, continued up to Gunmount and the snow seemed pretty dreamy.

No evidence of natural slides anywhere to my surprise, and couldn't get anything to move on steeper slopes. Rode down Davey Jones Locker which had the perfect runout. Lower mountain had a thin wind crust that made things a little difficult.


Don't think any of that dreamy stuff will be around after last night.
