February 7, Tatoosh
« on: 02/07/16, 08:39 PM »

Haven't seen many posts from the area lately so thought a conditions update might be useful. After a couple of good days skiing the butter at Alpental this weekend (#bbi16), I thought the north facing Tatoosh might hold some nice powder on a sunny day with views of the mountain. We got the sun as promised, but no pow, since it got warm very quickly. What ensued was some of the stickiest skiing and skinning I've done in a while. The north side was better than the south, but still quite sticky in places and nearly everyone we saw was having skin glop problems (glopstopper of only limited effectiveness).

Windslab was fairly reactive in isolated column tests (CT4 Q1 @ ~8 inches) but generally so supportive that little avalanche activity was actually realized. One crown across the way on the flanks of Rainier on a solar wind loaded aspect.
