My usual late-Nov trip to the pass turned out to be a usual powder trip with very few people. About 3' of consolidated powder made skiing delightfull, but trail-breaking a chore. Two of us broke a trail counter-clockwise around Naches Peak. The south slope had the best snow from the ridge top for about 1000'. The east basin was blasted by 50mph wind at the top, and provided a entertaining skiing. It may be the last skiing of the season at Chinook.
