Looking at the usual info for planning the outting, the week prior was looking promising, Baker had the deepest snow pack in the country. WOW this was gonna be an epic outing, but then mother nature had other plans. I decided to heed the warnings of NWAC along with what the Baker ProPatrol had been seeing, multiple glide avalanches ( full depth slides due to all the rain) and play it safe. The west side of the ski area was closed so Blueberry cat track was a nice uptrack to the patrol shack at the top of chair one. Aside from a few patrollers humping bamboo poles and roping off Pan Dome, the area was all mine. Not surprising wax was the important factor, with my wet spring wax still on (Yellow Purl) the ski's were a little sticky. Not terrible just slightly grabby. After my celebratory toast of Chai Tea, to the beginning of my 27th season, peeled the skins for a run down the untouched snow of Austin Pass.
