LBD420 was a good session and properly kind
plenty of slope to let the big skis make tracks.
snow held it’s glaunch where it wasn’t pounded

Easter was better than Christmas this year. clearly there must have been something else going on that kept the pugetopolis powder techs away from LoT4. crossed paths with nary an uphiller, sledder, dog walker and spent a considerable amount of time thanking UllR for the opportunity to slay the magical surface that is spring snow.

The slides that  ran over Cascade Traverse and the closed trails on the upper mountain combined to create some fantastic human obstacles courses given the "last day nothing else but Mission  Ridge open" crowds. Stuff that  had been skied a bit was pretty fun. It felt a lot more like post-season touring at the  area than in-season lift riding from a coverage perspective - definitely a heads-up sort of inbounds day!! They closed upper I for a little while somewhere  around 2:30 to allow for safer extraction of someone who  had apparently taken an injurious spill right by the lower entrance. Not a shock given how many people were clearly in over  their heads at various spots.

I took my only fall of the day while standing still after my first lift ride (waiting for some friends to come up Armstrong), waiting in a (I thought) safe spot that  could be well seen from above and was "guarded" by a little one foot tall tuft of shredded evergreen stobs poking out of the snow just uphill of me. A guy plowed his snowboard right through the  thicket of stobs and slammed into me - fortunately his board hit my boot and binding and not my leg above my boot, and I slammed down onto the snow hard enough to bruise a bit but fortunately nothing worse. He fell just above me and nearly karate chopped me with his board as he wildly swung it over toward me in a blindly reflexive attempt to right  himself, but I yelled at him to stop  and wait for me to move out of  his way (and I think I kind of grabbed/pushed the nose of his board before he had given it too much momentum) before doing any more damage to me, and  he relented. Fortunately his fleeing-lemming behavior was NOT a harbinger of what the rest of the  day would hold - all in all it was a fun day and the crowds actually not as impactful on the experience as on some other closing days in seasons past. Oh, and my friend who watched the whole thing from a few feet away said he sounded pretty drunk (at 11AM) when he made some pathetic excuse for his antisocial behavior.
