    With stevens gulch rd still closed, the obvious choices are Emperor/T-fork, or dead dog + kelso. That way you get most of your vert back on the down. Kelso has quite a few lines in skiable condition right now (skied NW face last weds), and they face N, so can easily be skied after dead dog.
    Sweet!! We bailed on dead dog cause someone was saying it wasn't very good right now.
    Maybe I'll still go..

    Great turns on Daves Wave today. Kinda wind scoured on top but lower bowl creamy 6-12". Super frozen underneath. Strong winds so I suspect the easterly wind loaded areas are slabbier.

    Love knocking out 3 pow laps in just a few hours. Pretty good out there. Fun springy snow. ENE and S aspects. I can never seem to get a tracks photo of the S line for some reason. Partial clouds and wind kept the S aspect nice and cool up high.

    I skied dragon's tail last friday. Both sides were in and we skied the skier's right. Skier's left had a sneak around the cornice but looked good to go. There was a little rock band to negotiate in the skier's right line, but it was smooth sailing through the choke. Not a very good freeze that night, but the snow held up ok.

    Going high only works if you can see . Tue or Wed looks good though. Definitely by Thu.

    Nice. Such a great summit. What line did you ski? Care to share anything about the snowpack?

    Just enough snow at BP to provide some good float.

    We actually caught a brief glimpse of good enough light on Peak 1 for the descent, so not too bad at all. The snowpack was great on the ridge for skinning and climbing and about a foot of mank on top of a consolidated base underneath on the ski. We skied the east face chute the first main chutes you run into off of the east ridge. A ski cut across the top got a small wet slide to run most of the length of the chute. The ski out of that basin kind of sucks, it was snow covered most of the way, only had to hike about 15 minutes once we intersected the trail.

    That peak is awesome, so many lines, the canyon gully line looked great, we saw some tracks down that way and considered dropping down that but decided against since we had no idea which way that line goes.

    That line can get pretty gnarly. Route finding down low can be tricky depending on coverage.

    Total hero powder today. Ski as fast as you want. Really surprising conditions considering the snotels. Looking forward to tomorrow. Some of the fastest hero snow all season I'd say.

    Got out after work. Not powder but nice wet surfy snow. The snowmobile riders were stoked since you could get up anything (that you could see).

    anyone been on Buffalo/the Silver recently? Curious what to expect since I'll be hitting it Saturday; will I be doing any downclimibing at the bottom?

    Not unless you ski Maximum Elvis by accident, which is a frequent occurrence.
