April, 9, 2017, Mt baker - Herman Saddle- pow

Quick report-  Awesome snow and sunny weather!

Long report -  Lot's of new snow fell in the past couple days around 10 to 15 inches.  Nwac forecast of considerable was interesting one because huge cornices and transition points were definitely hazardous but the new snow was a combo of amazing building snow 6 to 8 inches and cold smoke 3 to 8 inches.  With good visibility, sun and cold temps,  you couldn't ask for a better day in the mountains.  We toured up and over Herman Saddle, skied a few laps there and enjoyed pow turns back to the car at 3 o'clock!  Shaded aspects held pow all day, Sunny area's got just tiny heavy and fluffed a little bit on steeper slopes.  Snow felt like winter and light and lack of people (saw like 8 skiers all day) made it feel like spring.

Your photo shows a whole load of snow action about to happen, having happened and might-just-happen. Great pic & report.
