Skinned from Govy to the top of Palmer up West Leg road to Alpine trail and closed Timberline terrain. Below 6000' it was misting rain, and the 5" of snow were saturated and ugly.  At and above this level, the predominant snow surface was a 2 cm thick layer of glazed rime ice, which was largely supportable.

Skiing on the Palmer was dead frozen groomer. Loud and not terribly fun. I stopped at the top of Palmer, so I don't know how high the ice continues. With freezing levels going to 11k, it's not so important.

It's in bounds groomer skiing on the south side until the next storm.  We should have a good bed surface by the time that arrives...one month from now.
