The gate opened promptly at 9AM.  We found 6-12" of good skinnable snow right at the parking lot.  The sky was blue, wind was negligible to 9000', and turns were superb down to 7000' where the sun made the afternoon conditions heavier.  Skiing without damage to bases was possible on the trail to the car.

I think this sums it up pretty well.

Good running into you up there today, Silas. We had a fun time making turns despite having to follow your tracks back down through the fog to Pan Point.

 Great skiing and weather today -- amazing how broken up the Nisqually is after this last summer.

We had a good day out there too. Made it up to 10k and skied variable wind buff down to about 9,500 and then had nice turns from there. Weather was pleasant but windy above the cloud deck. We made the error of trying Pan Face on the way down and ended up with some nice base shots. Great day though and we were skiing in tanks most of the way up until the wind hit around 8,500. Not a bad day for October!
