Wind hammered solid cardboard most places with some rotten snow in the protected areas and bare ground where the sun shines against the south facing slopes.  A couple of good storms would be really nice here in the Wenatchee area.  Today I went 2200' uphill and I found about 150' of nice skiing turns.   Pockets of goodness are out there, but you have to look pretty hard to find them.

Saw a weather report that said winds had been clocked at 99 MPH on Mission Peak the day you were looking for turns!

^^^that's normal for here, we only worry if it gets close to 140-150 mph.
