January 22, Swift Creek Drainage Quick TR
« on: 01/24/17, 12:42 PM »

Went out Sunday for a day tour. The plan was to stick around Table Mtn but an hour into the tour the visibility went to zero so we headed to the the swift creek drainage. The visibility was really good in the trees and we lapped the area. Very short runs. A couple areas are 40 deg and they sluffed everytime. Snow was just light enough to not be grabby. Generally about a foot of 'powder'. Some areas have the ice/crust layer still present although I never hit it while skiing.
