SAC avy rating is EXTREME today. I don't think I've ever seen them give that rating. Interesting snowpack with all this dumpage.


So since I'm "extreme" I can safely go out and shred lines, right?

Skin track is in on Tallac, just to Corkscrew area.

Vis was poor, but there is evidence of naturals in North Bowl and a big ol deposition pile pretty much at the bottom of Corkscrew. Couldn't see how that started.

Heelside turns resulted in really inconvenient blinding, choking, awesome faceshots.

West shore was money today (no pics or vids :()
Up top on a cross loaded ridge found some dense, reactive wind slabs while breaking trail but luckily they were confined to a small area. Didn't notice any other instabilities while riding except some sloughing on some steeper tree runs. Didn't do any digging :nononno: but felt confident with the terrain we were in.
It was fast powder.

The snow is holding good with all this cold air sitting in place. Hit up a hill across from the house for a couple laps and found nice, un-wind-effected snow. Should be good for a few more days.
