Hyak March 21, 2020
« on: 03/22/20, 10:34 AM »

Arrived at the main lot around 11:00 am with  blue bird conditions. Almost looked like lifts were running for the lot was 3/4 full. Amazed at the amount of folks with touring gear. Headed up the trail along with a many others. The snow was still firm in shady areas. Stopped an took a break at the Hidden Valley chair before we skied to the valley base where we found many others. Noticed that a groomer had visited the base of Mt Catherine. Later found out from a pro patrol that the groomer had made it to Silver Peak saddle. He said that track was fine and the skiing was excellent when he skied it a few days ago. Skinned up to the patrol cabin. Estimate 30 to 40 at the top of Hyak and they just kept coming many in snow shoes. Skied the face and the snow was excellent. Some of the best spring snow in recent memory. Had a cool one in the parking lot which was now close to capacity. Most groups did follow social distancing. Got my fingers crossed that this blows over quickly and the lifts start turning later this spring. Snow is in the forecast may get some powder turns later this week

Yeah would be better for our sport if people DO follow the guidelines, so that we don't have the forest service or other government shutting down all outdoor travel.

What was up with the trees that were cut down and blocking Sissy’s run? Any buddy else notice that?
