Skied Silver this morning. Intermediate snow starts around 2800'. Parked before the first hairpin on FR 9070 which adds a 2 mile road walk each way. Continuous snow past the Mt. Catherine trailhead

Enjoyed a short break on the ridge. Conditions were warm, fast, and slushy. Took a short lap west towards Annette (300'). Booted back up and descended the North bowl - a few rocks appearing but solid coverage. Car to car in 3.5 hr. Grabbed pizza in Snoqualmie for lunch and made it back home by 1pm. Fun morning in the mountains!



I thought with all this sunny warm weather the Silver window was likely opening up.  How long do you think the descent down to Lake Annette will hold.  That is such a great steep descent!  Maybe with more normal temps returning this week, it will hold snow til next week when I can get it!

Run down to Annette is getting thin in sections but would gamble it has another 2 weeks -maybe more if weather stays cool
