Really getting close....Today hit some deep turns and some rocks still. Ridge lines are still too shallow. Some concerns with heavy deposits on the lee sides. Kept to low angles to stay safe. Ridge lines had windslab, but not an issue as total snow on ridges was only 4-6" deep. Over 2' on lee sides. Staying very aware of the snowpack and all influences extremely critical to safety - and ski bottoms!

If it snows about six inches more and the sun comes out....It will be the center of the universe...That being said, stick to the Crest for the most snow this weekend, unless you really know this low snow area well.
