Much of last weekends snow below 7,000 was lost to rain. Above 7000, there was some new. We climbed to 8,900 on hard/refrozen snow. After lunch we skied down on defrosting snow/ice very much like early spring pre-corn conditions. Very nice and very fast! We skied to 7,400 in 10 minutes with a short deski to cross the rock humps midway down. Regine had her rock skis so she skied all the way to Pebble Creek and then re-ski'd to ski the small snow patch just over the ridge down from Pebble Creek. It was a real bluebird day with deep blue sky and little wind. abc
