    Itís skiing well. Open terrain pretty much got skied out today.

    Windy gate did not pop due to cornice formation and low vis. I expect to be hiking tomorrow.

    Not sure if serious or trolling but I heard it was actually warming up

    If only there were some sort of automated system that kept track of mountain temperatures at different elevations

    It was superb early.

    Sun appearing quckly turned chopped up snow to mashed spuds.

    What was untracked or in the shade stayed good all day.

    Warmer and rain snow mix this morning... which will be good for the base... apparently

    It was indeed.
    Hyak was great in the morning.
    Charging into fresh lines early revealed a bit of a punchy snowpack (likely wind effected) that had more body to it than recent days at Alpy. Rode like a dream on the board though, surf was good while it lasted.

    There was lots of ridiculously good snow outside of the Elevator gate Friday. I followed my nose (i.e. untracked pow) into this mandatory huck. Anybody recognize it? Sorry about the crappy pic.

    The first run yesterday at Hyak was killer. Turns were optional down East Peak.

    Bottom skiers right of Crown Bowl. Years ago there was a painted wooden crown up on a tree at the top but it fell off after big year in the 90s. We hit that same feature on on Weds, also found good turns skiers left side on friday morning.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    Hey there PNWers, we're thinking about pow-chasing from Colorado this coming weekend, but we're wondering if we're crazy, between seattle traffic and rain events, we just don't understand you people. Any advice as to whether this is a good idea?

    thanks!

    Wet today for sure
    Warm, poor visibility
    Hiking not likely

    You've probably looked at the forecast, but at this point it doesn't look the weekend to do that. Freezing levels forecast are well above the parking lot at crustal.

    I figured you would know it. Thanks. I think I saw you skiing with mini-Mofro Friday. You were both wearing ski team jackets. MM was on white Kastles, right? I didnít get close enough to say ďhi.Ē

    Roof slid. Icicles are gone. Surfaces back to requiring metal shovels. The east flow is no more
