Dec 5th - Snoqualmie Pass
« on: 12/05/18, 11:13 PM »

It was fast. It was cold. N & NE aspects between 3800' & 3000' offered a few inches of nice, dry snow on a firm, underlying rain crust. Did two laps after taking out the recycling, probably the lowest tide I've ever golfed in.

The surface hoar is considerable. I wouldn't rule-out ground-layer facets. If the next storm doesn't come-in warm and/or wet, I'd note this as a layer of concern.

Moral of story is don't ski when you can snowboard

... and the forecast is for it to arrive fairly cold (2.5-3k freezing level).
