April 9, Red Mountain (Snoqualmie / Commonwealth)
« on: 04/09/17, 09:06 PM »

Not many folks out here today, but it was awfully pleasant. Trees flocked with fresh snow all around, and a very moderate amount of sun (not too much!). Red's west face had 4-6" of mostly unaffected cold snow over a crust that was a bit firm for skinning (in places) but decent for booting. There was some unstable deep mush on obvious steeper solar slopes, but that was pretty easily avoided. Wintry April, yay?
