Wow, light n fluffy 6" soft powder on a smooth firm base on all aspects between 4300-3000'!  Some sun crust below today's 3" on south slopes. So thankful for Facebook and Brian sharing up to the minute news last night.  You don't know if you don't go.  Mmmmmm, it doesn't take much powder to please me this season.

Wow, surprising! By "below Blewett" do you mean Tronson Diamond head area?

I'm sorry I couldn't make it to ski with you two.  Kid duty keeps me close to the Ridge on weekends.  Skiing here was good, but you probably had better.

Rocks and turf sounds like a firm base to me!

Common Kam Rock and turf only come into play with operator judgement error!  Good light snow in a low elevation low snow area. First time all season it was skiable! I'll take you there if February if we get some more!
