Jan 19 ONP Hurricane Thank you MLK!!
« on: 01/20/15, 04:29 AM »

MLK day, partly sunny, 20s, new pow, no wind, and...the road is open Smiley

I didn't expect much given the low cover, (15-20 percent of normal,) grass still showing on southern exposures but I was pleasantly surprised. Sheltered and protected northern exposures above 5300 are covered with about 2-7 inches of wind blown powder over supportive crust making for pretty nice turns.

Barely enough snow on the trail to ski out to the Hill. Great for skate if your into that sort of thing!

The HH bowl looks almost normal, but I can feel the rocks lurking under your tracks.
