Four friendly souls headed up the Phantom ahead of the storm. Smooth ride up and down. Nice views above a 4k cloudsea.

4 cm of new atop an edgeable scratchy crust at the base, becoming 15 cm in sheltered spots up high. Thin windslab up top, with easy Q2 shears. No propagation.

Skiing is fun.

Good way to start the day... far exceeded the vertical farming Hyak dawn patrol missions of late. Nice to get out amongst the trees. Here are a few images. Poorly edited video to drop later. Edit: still learning how to shoot video, evidently. all came out as photos.

Navigating up towards waterfall. Headlamps weren't actually totally required, DST will take care of that soon though, for a little while


Entrance to slot. We did not ski it. #deskjob

Skiing is fun yep.  You don't know if you don't go. Vertical farming Pacific Crest on perfect groomers was fine fun for an old geezer and a young Vertfester with excellent gear selection (just like mine, hehe.)  Nice NE breeze kept the precipitation drier when it began around midday. Good exercise, but too slow to get to Silver Fir lodge in time for Bacon Blue Burgers. Sad

Those corduroy groomers were quite nice yesterday afternoon and evening too, as were both front and back side runs where the new snow fell on smooth surface and no one had skied yet.
