The forecast didn't look great, with freezing levels up at 5000 feet. The trip didn't start much better with my buddy receiving a $278 ticket in front of my house. Nor when we had to put chains on when the roads were clear! But the skiing... my friend, made up for everything. We arrived at Stevens at 11am and skinned up. We expected mashed potatoes and that's what was given. Heavy, but very turnable. Several laps, superfat skis, and relatively few people out. Avy danger was clearly high and we stayed on moderate slopes. Excellent coverage.
