Echoing yesterday's report, thin in the Park, but nice stashes to be had! 6" puff at bottom of switchback trail, with closer to a foot at the saddle. Bowls skied very nicely with 3' in the drifted shaded areas, but just inches over the scree on other spots. 2" soft wind slab over lower density snow, with a few cracks, but no movement at all.

We were able to ski the full run out to 4,500 on the n. side, and gingerly follow the skin track to about 5,200 on the S. side.
