A couple of inches of dry snow atop a supportable glaze-ice crust at the summit, winds moving snow near ridgeline. On the ski down, fluff on crust became fluff on unsupportable crust near 5k became fluff on mank below lake elevation.

Ski penetration at 5k: 5 cm. Boot penetration to the upper thigh.

At and below the lake elevation, it's wet mank as deep as you can push a pole.

Plenty of wet slide debris, probably from Friday, in most paths along Smith Brook.  Slide character on steepest North slopes had a curious trench-like shape.

Thanks, Susan and Ted, for a welcome respite in the mountains.

Still rocking the B&W! I had one of your Lichtenburg photos from last year as a screensaver for almost 12 months. My eyes were always roaming around. Thansk

Thanks! Is this the photo you to which you are referring? http://www.turns-all-year.com/skiing_snowboarding/trip_reports/index.php?topic=35959.0

If so, (and relevant to the TR), here's a roadside view of the same slope yesterday, processed in a similar way:

...that's the one. Look very familiar.
The snow looks kinda grungy this year though!
