December 10, 2016 Bullion/Cement
« on: 12/11/16, 11:08 AM »

Slopes skied fantastically well for early December.  Temps were in the teens at times, with wind on the ridge, but some nice sun breaks.  We saw some pillowing on lee slopes, and a small cornice fractured when stomped, so we stayed on moderate slopes and took a short run into Cement Basin from the point south of Norse Peak.  Rocks still exist under the big new snow, but there was almost a foot of white-and-light over the heavier stuff.
The ski back into Bullion gave us continuous turns with only a few sharks. Large plumes of snow were created. 

There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval.
