Tatoosh 1/21 & 1/22
« on: 01/22/17, 07:35 PM »

Yo Yo'd the N facing slopes between Reflection Lake and Castle  (4700'-6200') both days this weekend. On Sat it was 2-3" on top of the rain crust, except for east aspects, which were wind scoured. No bonding with the rain crust. Sluffing on slopes over 35 deg.

Added another 4-5" overnight into Sun. No obvious wind slab on the western aspects, but avoided them anyway. Snow was heavy. Did not sluff on slope of 35 degrees with ski cuts.  Skied well so long as you didn't go too slow. Warm all day Sunday (low 30s). 

Sorry no pics.
