December 14, Hyak
« on: 12/14/15, 02:45 PM »

Beautiful morning. Storm brought a whole lot of new snow overnight, all the way down to exit 42 or so. 6-12" of mid-heavy density powder depending on where the wind blew it. The main front face was nicely filled in and smooth but the side runs still had their bumpy refrozen tracks from yesterday showing through. Back side was pretty bumpy past the top pitch or two and the sun shining made things heavy towards the bottom and breaking trail back up.

Central would have been more exciting today but surfing so much new snow was still great!

Face shots (at least a few, on the front), and pretty ok on the back on the shady edge by the trees. Much drier than Saturday, and deeper. Was getting some wind loading near the top, particularly late in the day. Nice to see you up there Jake.
