    Nice spring day at Copper with my kiddo (she rocked it down Seventeen Glades). Yesterday was even better, I thought. Tomorrow will probably suck, so we're going to ride that stupid mountain coaster (I'm a sucker and caved to my kid's pleading) and then head home.

    The season is getting better for me.

    Back in CO after phenomenal spring skiing up in Jackson (although super warm in the late afternoon). Ready for the best month: April. Powder, corn and no crowds.

    Interesting tidbit from Billy Barr, who has been keeping records in Gothic, outside CB, forever. Season snowfall this year is 7% less than average this year, despite all the reports of epicness. That's because SWE is 21% above average. All that wet snow is great for the base, but if all you're looking at is how many inches fell, it's not that impressive.

    PS- Nice to see snow today, the last couple days and nights were a little too hot- time to lock that snowpack up again.

    We had great conditions on SE at 10 AM in RMNP yesterday. Overnight freeze was not super deep, so it seemed like a pretty narrow window to me. If we see similar temps set in again soon, that is probably a good target for sunny day SE drop ins for the next few weeks.

    Yesterday and the day before were good, but it was obvious that today would not be good.

    I really love all the "how's the snowpack?" and "how was stability?" questions recently (here and elsewhere).

    FACTS:
    -the entire state is above average for season to date snowfall
    -there was a big load and shit slid big, everywhere
    -CAIC talked for several weeks about the potential for historic sized avalanches, and about how digging pits/stability tests/cracking&whumphing would not give reliable indications of stability/instability
    -CAIC dropped those problems from their concerns
    -it got really warm; wet avalanches happened
    -it got cold; wet avalanches stopped

    So, what the fuck do you want to know about the snowpack and/or stability? If you've been paying attention you already know what's up. There's a lot of snow. There might be weak layers buried very deeply but you're probably not going to impact them. If it's warm you might have predictable wet problems. If it's not warm and hasn't snowed the snow will suck. If it's not warm and has snowed you might have instabilities in the new snow. Anything anyone tells you about the deep weak layers doesn't mean dick.

    But what are you really saying about the snowpack?

    However, the full forecast does mention potential deep instabilities on cold high north facing slopes. Yes they obviously donít see it as enough of a concern to raise the danger rating but they do mention it.

    So Adrenalated gives an honest foggy goggles answer

    I like it, either you know what day it is or you don't
    It's not early may corn season
    it's late winter still, just cause it's 60 on the front range doesn't mean it's all cupcakes and sunshine in the mountains

    snow pack varies from location to location and face to face, either learn and figure it out or stick with meadow skipping and find someone to teach you

    Exactly why I was curious about the pack structure on a specific line. Recent first hand knowledge is useful, especially when Iíve been out of state all winter and thinking about heading that way. CAIC has general snowpack discussions and forecasts but submissions of full snowpack profiles at different locations have been less than frequent lately. If anyone has problem with me asking about conditions in a CO weather thread, they can piss off. I didnít get a straight answer and thatís somewhat expected but you canít blame a guy for asking. At least itís a better conversation than the typical ďxyz resort skied well todayĒ useless posts.

    I'd say that you got a straighter answer then you desired.
