Jan 3,4 ONP A whopping two inches of pow!
« on: 01/03/14, 09:05 PM »

Mixed conditions in shaded zones above 5500 ft. In spots you can find some nice fluff on top of variable grades of ice and supportable crust. If it stays cold the skiing should hold up for the weekend but you're going to have to work for it in these parts Smiley

The first couple of shots were taken by a guy I met from Georgia last week. He was psyched to have a chance to ski in the Olympics. Conditions were brutal but the scenery did not disappoint.

Conrad:

Check your pms! Sorry, I did not see your post until this morning. The skiing out there is going to be better than Klahanne by far! I was up there yesterday and it pretty slim pickin's with windpack, ice, hidden rocks, crust etc.

Good luck!

I'll second that!

We have been spending our "mountain" time on the single track trails out your way Doug. Not quite the same as pow turns, but enjoyable none the less!
