Rode Waterhouse proper today. It was surprisingly good. The skinning down low is a bit tricky. The upper 80% the peak had 6 or so inches of nice powder over a variable crust.

Great meeting ya Sherpa1 !

missed ya Towlie and Joe. I thought that was Joe's truck in the lot. I met up with JT around 1 for 2 perfect laps. That was after 10 laps at KW. Could have been the BDOTS for me.
:D

Red Lake on Saturday had preserved pow in the N bowl. About a 20-25 minute hike from HV to continuous snow below CL.

Powder House on Monday was great. Did three laps one tree line and 2 bowl lines. The bowl had set up fine no fractures just some small sluffing. At the end of the day around 11:30AM it was heavy at the bottom.
