November 12, 2015, Twin Lakes
« on: 11/12/15, 04:13 PM »

We drove to 3800' above Yellow Aster trailhead and started skinning on very thin cover from there.  At milepost 5, the consolidated snow covered rocks well.  Around Twin Lakes there was a variety of wind affected snow and low visibility.

Nearby we found some more sheltered terrain east and north facing 5300'-4600' and skied nice soft 12-16" powder over a consolidated base.  After 2pm the wind increased so we decided to head home.  The road down from Twin Lakes was smooth as a groomed run even all the way to our vehicle thanks to a few inches of new fallen powder.
