NICE! 6-12 inches of new snow, wind, and snow draped trees! Skied from the lower white salmon lodge to the arm, and up "Mr. Ed's". Snow started heavy, but changed markedly up higher, where windloading had pockets over a foot deep. I was hoping for another nice powder day, so i could break out the heavy Axioms again....Low visability, so we skied Mr. Ed's, took a couple pics, and kicked some surprisingly long running, low angle, slow, wet slides down near the bottom. Skied up to top of chair 7, then down to razor hone creek, through the ski area, to the truck at the gate.
