    Heavy pow up high, guanch midway on down.
    Punched in the throne traverse on 6th chair, got a couple of fresh rips down Throne Bowl.

    Best early, warm spell came up around 10:30. Gluey by 1:30.

    Still sounds awesome. Had a good time at Stevens but was dreaming about how fun Chair 6 could be at Xtal. Glad you got some of the goods!

    Thanks for that I enjoyed the circuitous route around the tree.

    Re: warming: Hit main chute on the throne about noon and found some fresh snow on skier's right. First turn kicked off a small slab that sluffed out to the lower traverse. Cut across to left side and then second turn same thing. Was no longer disappointed that South was closed.

    At about 1:00, I was skiing down to the bottom to have lunch and hit the glue line going mach snell. Double eject to scorpion to tomahawk. Total yard sale. I limped to my car, ate lunch and waited for the rain to stop. It didn't, so I headed home at 2:00.

    All in all, it was a pretty fun day. Everything was soft, including the avy debris.

    Found an iPhone today at Crystal. Still powered up and working when I found it. Let me know if you know who it might belong to.

    Went for a tour behind Crystal yesterday, you guys have lots of terrain in those basins... fun hot pow back there. Didnít get to ski what we wanted because it got too warm but still had a blast. Skiing the lifts today if anybody wants to meet up. Purple jacket, blue pants, BGs. Snow falling at the base right now!

    Northway is pretty decent right now as long as the big chunks are avoided.

    Baker delivered yesterday with no one there. This morning was unreal but turned into slop and half rain around 11. Crazy good for this late in the season though.

    Dusk patrolled the 'yakyard today and scored on the second coming of corn o'clock. Untracked creamed corn all the way down the back forced me into taking a second lap and skiing home by headlamp

    Yesterdays thaw made for some loud turns today on the upper mountain at Crustal. Viz on the top was thicc.

    The mid to lower mountain skied great with fast trenching corn. Top to bottoms rages were the r00l.

    Might not be the appropriate thread for this but I dont think it merits its own thread either...

    Wanted to give a shoutout to Brandon at Evo Seattle for handling a boot issue i had to deal with. I got fitted for and purchased a pair of Atomic Hawx Ultra 120ís back in February, and after skiing them a few days, I determined that the fitter put me in a shell one size too big. I went into Evo expected to have to beg and plea to get them to let me swap for another size, but Brandon was totally cool with it, and even transferred the correct boot in from their portland location for me. After the new boot came in, he did a complete re-fit for me on the new boot at no extra cost to me. To make it even better, the new boot was on sale due to it being the end of the season, so I actually got a refund back as part of the exchange. Brandon was awesome throughout the process, and I would recommend him to anyone in the Seattle area looking to get boot work done.

    Crustal got a solid freeze last night then went bluebee today and served up some sweet creamed corn for the closing day. Ran it until the last chair.

    Alterra, you're not doing badly, but damn it would be nice to be able to take advantage of Green Valley in June.

    Fun closing day at Crystal, luckily enough people were lapping 6 for some skier grooming to occur.
