A few good sections in the trees off the ridge. But biggest issue was there still isnít much coverage and lots of stumps and logs and small trees to watch out for, as well as getting stuck in tree wells and creek gullies. And 35 degrees when we got back to the car. But we did leave in time to get a parking spot. Sounds like they turned a lot of people around and sent them back home today

11 hardy instructors from the Washington Alpine Club's backcountry course enjoyed an instructor-development day led by Scott Schell.

Loose snow ran with some  effort on a storm layer about 30 cm down on test slopes on the lee (S) side atop the Yodelin trees. A second storm layer displayed itself at  CT 9-10, ~70 cm down; a sharp line in columns after testing, but indeterminate fracture character.  Friday's rain crust is a prominent feature in the snowpack.

Snowfall all day; never too much, never too little. Perhaps a little less wind than expected. Warming arrived on schedule/as forecast in the afternoon, newest snow was noticeably heavy on the descent to the car.

We didn't do a lot of skiing, as our focus was on improved instruction, but the skiing was quite good.

Thanks, all! Smiley.
