    One measure is top of hill in GV, the other is at the base. Both are correct for their location.

    Skin laps at the golf course today. Coverage better than telemetry would suggest. We saw est. 12" new wet, top 5" over thin soft rain layer, 7" below that. We saw grooming equipment in action over at Lil' Thunda.

    Gonna miss White Pass opener tomorrow cuz I once again am taking one for the birdies, i.e., I got roped in to do the Audubon Xmas bird count. We'll hit it Sunday.

    Summit instructors have training this weekend at West. They'll be running Little Thunder for them until 1:30pm both days. Word is now that the lift access is only for those in the training. No "open skiing" even for the instructors. I would assume those earning their turns should be fine.

    Was thinking of going touring near stevens or crystal with this recent storm. Crystal seems to have gotten a little more snow so probably going to roll the dice there. Has anyone been out and found the coverage to be good enough?

    What about Baker? You're right about no availability around Crystal.

    Same here. With Rex and GV open there should be plenty of Ptex donation stations for everyone.

    Turned out to be not so bad, eh? A little wind affected but first tracks on Lemolo, Upper and Lower Tyee go down as a powder day in my book. Glad you found the goods.

    Baker has pretty shit weather to plan around. It's always bluebird with a foot of new at crystal, practically like the front range. Stevens has awesome aprea in Leavenworth, great cabins over the too. Alpental is midocre

    Also could be one of those deals where the snow improves as it gets colder this weekend.

    Have you thought about Portland or Bend for the trip? They've been getting tons of snow compared to up here. And their beer scene is unreal.

    39F & raining when I drove thru North Bend this evening but the precip hasn't really made it up the pass yet. Contemplating earning a hole or two on the golf course in the morning before heading down for a holiday affair in town. Seriously considering visiting the Northern Dead End on Sunday

    I'm a strict textualist. So when they say "snow base" to me that means the amount of snow measured at the base, not 3/4 way up the mountain. Clear fraud!

    So if I drive up Glacier Creek Rd, hike up Heliotrope, then ski, is the base where my truck is parked?

    Base = the settled snow under the overnight (or recent if it's snowing) snowfall, aka "snow base".

    But I agree. There's a fine line between optimistic and BS.

    Is there an app for heliotrope?
