March 2 - Snoqualmie Pass
« on: 03/02/18, 05:05 PM »

Another few inches on top of the pile as we toured above treeline up to 5200' on a southwest facing aspect. The sun stayed behind the clouds and a snow squall rolled through, all of which kept the fresh snow cold and light on top of what was probably a solar crust. Skied fast and light, with faceshot potential on steeper rollovers. We kept it to slopes averaging 32º and saw no signs of reactivity, other than occasional storm snow giving out underfoot on the skin track. Slopes above 35º toward the saddle looked dangerously tempting after all the trailbreaking effort, but we let common sense prevail.

The snow down in the trees on sheltered and shaded aspects continues to be phenomenal. I may just have a new favorite run.
