4-8" soft boot top powder on a smooth firm base in Green Valley.  Very lean and sparky below Rainier Express. Some crustiness in the afternoon thanks to in and out morning bluebird.

nice day skiing indeed.
We did have some slidey slidey activity on West Aspect at 6500ft. Wind loaded storm snow. Made a small crown a few inches deep and maybe 100ft wide. Sent the pigeons flying in all directions!

Only a littly, but could have been nasty on a more substantial fall line. Plenty of energy and she wanted to run!
