Paradise got 3 inches of new snow Friday night. We were up there for the annual Seattle Mountaineers Glacier Travel/Crevasse Rescue Class this past weekend with new snow for Saturday and good snow conditions for Sunday. There had been a lot of surface slides on Saturday from the new snow over a bombproof base. Looks like it had settled down by Sunday. In fact there were a few brave souls that had skied from Muir down the Nisqually chutes (not setting off anymore slides) and then they continued on down toward the Nisqually Glacier Bridge.
