Boxing Day December 26, 2018 was an awesome sleeper country club day!!!  Fresh refills all day long. 6-16” ski penetration in shot 6 and rocks off. Nice 1-3” fluff inbounds. Lines were non existent. Graceful skiing was observed.

No shock about the dog park TH. Yet a few miles away I ran into just one other party out of another  TH, and with some excellent snow - way more than  us few could  use! Though below 3500 or so brushy areas are still exacting  a bit of an early season approach tax.

Wonderful, beautiful views Glacier Peak to Rainier and all the local landmarks.  Quite empty early; Chair 2 lines grew 11-1230 or so and then shrank. I had the entertainment of a ~ 40 foot vert fall on Nash lower entry perhaps related to dodging rocks...OK got that out of my system for the year! Powder Bowl and Gunmount held great preserved powder.

Armstrong lighted at the club on Tuesday evenings? Follow up: yup.  Odd 20% ice/60% packed pow/20% blown in heavy pow. Snowpack notably shrunk from 12/31.
