December 4, 2016, East Peak

Deepest and some of the lightest snow I've ever skied at East peak by Crystal in 40 years of visiting. 30" of increasingly dense made my knees tired quickly.

In a perfect world, everybody would act with the correct etiquette and follow the rules. Human nature as it is= NOT GOING TO HAPPEN....no matter how many discussion on ski blogs/websites. Face reality............

Maybe the best conditions I've ever been lucky enough to experience!  I thought the snow was VERY stable given how new it was and how much there was - pretty rare combination of factors to get a day like Sunday!

Conditions up there were crazy good today as well. Good visibility, DEEP smokey pow, and lots of untracked to go around. Thanks for the report.

Wow,Silas, that sounds like a great day, I have not been out for a while, Mike and I hiked a few days ago near Mission, he took skis, I did not. It is starting to add up over here, but nothing like you are getting.  Had some good reports from Stevens environs, and I'm sure WA pass is good.
