Great to have 4-6" fresh snow and 25 degree temperatures today!  We booted a short section today when we skidded too much trying to set our own skin track without ski crampons. Below the usually supportive crust we found 10" of mushy sugar. My Wyoming friend thought the SE facing snow was wet below 5500' but I called it Cascade powder. Due north slopes held nice soft powder 6500'-5000'. Fortunately skies did not clear until around 130pm.  Utah and Cali may have great skiing now but so do we, and less than two hours from home.  I like my WA ma (nature!). Smiley

I've installed a GPS tracker in your car so I can follow it to the pow.
