November 8, 2013, Crystal ski area
« on: 11/08/13, 08:08 PM »

We were able to skin from and ski to about 200' above the base lodge.  We found great 4-8" fresh powder on a firm base in green valley. After three runs there we finished with a run down powderbowl that was more wind affected.  After finding a few stones in luckyshot we decided to ski down the cat track and our skin track. It gets dark at 5pm wow!

Nice to see you found the smoky stuff earlier in the weekend. A few laps up to the top of Skyline at Stevens on Sunday morning yielded a nice pre-Thanksgiving gift: mashed potatoes!
