April 30, 2013, Phantom Trees
« on: 04/30/13, 12:34 PM »

Knee deep light powder on open slopes 5900-4000', as soon as the sun came out it was very heavy below 4000'.   Crispin said even the bad stuff was better than the snow he did not find in Hawaii last week.

We did a couple of early laps on the Phantom Slide. Pretty much epic end of April conditions. A get it quick and get out quick type of day. Many visits to the white room were had. Thanks for the skin track.

I guess you probably had to re-open, but Ed, Matty, and I put one in Monday evening.

Phenomenal snow that day!

Nice video. What a bonus powder day. Did you hit those rocks or clear them? They looked like they snuck up on you!
