You guys are some lucky bastards this season. Have fun living it up and be safe out there. I hope you keep getting snow, but the rest of the country would appreciate it if you would share a little more.

Can someone in the PNW tell me where I can find this 'goods' you keep talking about? Exactly how far north will have to drive to get some gnars? Will I be able to find a freshies in Southern Oregon, or will I have to drive farther North? I am starting to go nutz.

Due to stability and visibility, taking pictures wasn't a priority but here's what I got...
Gregm lost with no tracks to follow and a ways to go...
Hey who put that debris there??
The grand daddy of them all. Skier cut on easterly aspect, rollover 30 degrees plus at the top at around 4600ft. Closer inspection revealed a crown at least 1-2ft deep with propagation running couple hundy. Hard to tell how deep the debris pile was but while combing around I did manage to see tree branches snapped and branches that will be growing in new directions. Wish I could have gotten a pic of the avi coming down but all I saw was white smoke overtaking trees. My q to leave.
The slabs that were set off earlier in the day were isolated due to the nature of the terrain and occurred on easterly facing slopes between 5300-5000ft. Steep rollovers on top but petering out below before flattening out and going slightly up hill. The last picture was on a consistent pitch so the slide gained significant speed before losing momentum below.
