15" of fresh snow reported at 4000' Stevens Pass today along with 6-8" each of the previous two days had us excited for steep and deep blower powder.  Unfortunately the reality was whipped cream cheese consistency between 4000-5400' with 24-30" pole penetration and 8-10" ski penetration.  At least the wind and rain were absent.   There were several small natural 4-6" slab sluffs and we heard of one 12" skier initiated slab about 60' across that ran for a few hundred feet at 60+mph.  Be careful out there.

60mph is definitely faster than us.
