The past few storm cycles has brought over 40" of new snow to the Central Oregon Cascades. Most of this new snow is coming in heavy and quite dense. Riding can be challenging as it's difficult to get on steeper terrain without risk. Dug a pit around 7000 feet and found a few crust layers. The dense snow is really helping consolidate stuff quite quickly. Some pretty big slab layers in there, but not really moving very easily. A few more days and we should be good to go.
On a side note i did find a very small sugar layer on the ground, not more than an inch or two, but some faceting going on down there. This will need to be monitored for some time.
With all the new snow most everything is filled in, time to get it on!!!!
yo Jlag, you're a good mang, ya know? keeping the data flowin'......
today was a surely a gnarly day on the hill.......Bachelor lost power (don't ask Jlag about it - stuck for 20 minutes 3 chairs from the top! ), lifts stopped, shut down, re-opened...flatness everywhere...sigh....we still had fun!
just for a thickness reference, here's Mar slicing thru the turd at 1:30 pm....
