January 20, Tatoosh Crustcapades
« on: 01/21/14, 09:57 AM »

Some days you get powder.  Some days you get corn.  Other days you really nail the snow conditions and really get the ideal crust.  When it doesn't break, most of the time, unless you decide to turn abruptly.  Just don't turn.

Title and description aside it was actually a really fun day and because I was drop kicked in the head as a baby I really enjoy a good old breakable crust.  There is an unconsolidated dry layer underneath in occasional areas of north facing slopes, check for whomping when we get new snow and keep spatial variability will be high.

Last week, as we were driving to Paradise, we were amazed to see the amount of rime plastered on Pinnacle but especially on Stevens and Unicorn.  The gleaming slopes this week did not encourage us to go to the Tatoosh.

I know not of what you speak...I've never had a sufferfest in crampons!

I have to say accurate TR and great photos. Now I guess we know why there weren't other reports from people getting out in the Tatoosh. #icecapades
