A lot of skiers today, and dogs.  One reason may be Chinook was closed.  Originally planning to ski down to Crystal Lake, but the south side looked pretty rocky.  Skiing in the basin was excellent on up to a foot of dense stable powder, some places on hard crust.  Skiing out was ok needing some care to avoid rocks.

We went over to Campbell/A-Basin and had the place pretty much to ourselves. Very fun, stable snow even at 34-degrees in open slopes. Took 4 laps wearing a shit-eating grin the entire time!
