Thanks for the info and pm's dudes. I'm trying to get some info from the BLM on the roads leading into the Henries. Should know more tomorrow. As long as the roads are in decent shape I will likely head down there on Saturday, camp as far as I can drive, and tour on Sunday. My wife's not up for it so I could use some company if anyone's interested. Only catch is that we'd have to take separate vehicles as I'll not be returning to SLC until Wednesday or Thursday due to work.

Yeah Mar123 that one zone looks sick (the one before Scotties, but Scotties is sick too).

I saw these pics from the UAC of Cascade Proper....SPOOKY, I think it ran on that ice layer. Between that one, the Mill B, Mineral, Snowbird periphery, and others in the Timp surroundings all on a similar aspects, make me think twice about some of the lines I would still like to tag.

These are what you call sleeping dragons. Low probability, HIGH consequence.

wind slabs were a little reactive within the new snow, fractures from 1"-6" noted

Saw some of these guys, sorry the pics are so shitty

Some fam came to visit. We'll go up there!

I'm not an avy pro but my nephews think I am.

Sam gets the hang of the probe pole.
Image
Gray slays it.
Image
Lil Sam still skis but perhaps we'll switch him over from the darkside.

My brother Chris, we started riding boards together 25 years ago and I always love having the chance to again. Thanks for making it out!

Conditions were an inch or 2 of fresh on top of supportable base, actually quite nice and smooth on south-facing Alta. I imagine it's pretty windjacked up high though as it was a bit gusty. Rain below about 7500 ft in LCC. Isolated column test pit revealed a smooth bed surface weakness about 8 inches down, at the obvious interface between recent snow from last few days, and the icy-grained, water-saturated pack below that, but it took 75 pounds of nephew jumping on it to make it slide.

Got back in town to hear while it was sunny and warm down south it was pretty much snowing the whole time up here. Love the spring.
Found a pocket on the first run.

Zone is a minefield of bus size cornices and wind slabs.

Take care everyone.

snow keeps falling....great turns this morning. Was riding at Brighton NE facing from top of Milli, Solid foot of new fluff, winds were gusting up to about 40mph along the ridges...Will have to keep an eye out for slabs if heading out...Sun was peaking in and out of clouds, snow getting a little heavy towards bottom :bananas: :bananas: :bananas:

rode in mineral today with bucky. winds were brutal, sun came out for a few seconds and then made a stronger appearance as we exited. pulled out a small slab maybe 6-10" deep and 20 feet wide or so. noted lots of graupel and pooling up to three feet deep in some spots. would have video of all this, but my helmet cam is being a judas.
