Nov. 12, 2015 Stevens Pass POW
« on: 11/14/15, 06:56 AM »

With Telemack's timely conditions report, of the day prior (Thanks Mack!), Rowan and I headed up to see what coverage was like. Mostly expecting settled wind effected snow. Much to our suprise, we were rewarded with 11" to deeper drifts, of sweet creamy powder, on a solid base, on higher elevations. We rode steepish lines, until the warm front hit around 2:30, and then the snow started to get a little heavier and sluffy, so We opted to call it good and head for the fun commute ski back to the base.

Here's a little vid of the face shots found, intentionally and unintentionally  Cheesy

Wow! Legitimate Powder!  That looked like a good day for any part of the season.  Spectacular for early November.
Fun video.  Thanks for posting.

Nice work. Hope you didn't hit any landmines! You must do recon when the slope is bare.
