Feb. 25th Stevens North
« on: 02/26/14, 10:21 AM »

Snow quality was pretty amazing, 8 to 15" ski penetration.  Just the lightest glaze of freezing rain.  Nastiness in the deep snowpack kept us on our toes all day and surface instability was rife with a few 1 to 2 foot releases.  A great day out though.

No, it's in the ever popular Heather-Skyline ridge area.

North slopes are still very reactive.  West slopes were getting a lot of wind loading and very reactive as well.  Upper east slopes were begining to get scoured be the east wind and seemed safer on the surface.  We didn't get any results on south aspects although they were the most threating be far with the heat and sun.

Did you guys get above the rain crust?  It seem to be more prevalent further west...

No, the inversion seemed to be well above crest level, but it was only a very light crust, hardly noticed it.
