    God damn! I can’t believe how filled in Powerhouse is. I barely recognized it in your picture. That line is quite a bit steeper than it appears in your picture too. Way to get after it BCD.

    If you’re just now starting to step it up with the onset of Spring, I can’t imagine what kind of shit you’ll be doing in the near future- Mendel? Split Mountain?

    Thanks for the stoke, I can’t wait to get down there this weekend.

    12/2/04 – Noticed very stable conditions on Powderhouse despite these unusually cold and dry Tahoe conditions. Of course Powderhouse is well protected from that brutal east wind that ripped up Carson Pass – creating several reported wind slabs that slid naturally on Red Lake Peak. Gimpy and I only noticed wind affected surface on the entry lip into the main bowl, just east of the summit. It was mostly just a crusty surface but did show some signs of a slab. We did not venture into the open and steeper sections of the bowl, instead we opted to stay in the sheltered trees where the snow was still very dry and light and…….$$$$.
    If the temps don’t warm up before this next storm moves in, watch the bonding closely. We both noticed some surface hoar crystalization on the skin up.
    Skiing was great never the less.
