February 23rd, 2014 Bluewett Pass Champagne Powder
« on: 02/23/14, 05:02 PM »

What a difference a day makes. Yesterdays unskiable - was today's fantastic! From 3,000 to 4,600 feet I found excellent light dry powder from 3" to essentially bottomless. I stayed in lightly treed areas and on ridges the whole time. Unless some big wind spoils it, the goods are here right now! Sorry about the lack of pictures, I finally used my good camera, but don't have the cord with me to download pictures right now. My two cell phone pictures show the angle of the ridge I skied, and the depth of the powder. (I didn't go over that edge) Everything is nicely skiable right to the Hiway!

As a TAY community we're going to have to come together on a uniform spelling of "Blewett".

I live 15 miles from there and I still get it wrong. I think it is Blewett Pass but a sweat there are some other spellings that I've seen. Irregardless - good snow - you should be here!

Never mind - it was named after Edward Blewett - an old miner. I'm sure he knew how to spell his own name. I will work on it. Grin

Is it not spelled "Bluetah!"

That is crazy considering your last post.
