With clear and cold for awhile in the Puget Sound region and reports of high winds in the mountains, we expected pretty crusty/crummy conditions. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. Few skiers out today (everyone doing the last minute Christmas shopping at the malls?) and the snow was really sweet. Did a number of runs on the west aspects of Mazama. Some of the best conditions here that I've seen in quite awhile. It was a little stiffer where more wind/sun exposed but still eminently skiable. A great day and a fantastic Christmas present to have so few hopes with such great results!
