Update on snow conditions in LCC...

Southerly aspects are completely bare.

Northerlies are holding 20-50cm between 9k and 11k. There was at stout crust (heat related?) about 10cm down at 10k. The snow on top has probaby trickled in from the latest passing cold fronts and a bit of wind. Not a whole lot of faceting going on... probably due to the warm-ish temperatures the last couple weeks.

Overall, there is enough (but not 'enough') snow on the ground for major faceting to occur if we hit a cold snap. And this could be a season-long problem on the N above 9k.

A couple pics from today:

Good preseason lines, still rocky

And, a rough profile at 10k on the north (maybe you can see that crust)

yo, i've been fiddling with this for almost an hour, and I can't get my pictures to show up...

I've got the pics uploaded to PicasaWeb. I'm copying the link, in the bottom right corner where it says 'link', and it begins with https://picasaweb.google...

WTF!?! :banghead:

Yo! Is it just me, or do you all only see a red 'X' with the word 'image'? Can't figure out what's going on.

Quote your original thread and look at the link, you need a link that has " .jpg" at the end of it, that way you know it links to the image. Quote my response for the code.

To get the URL of the image, I right clicked the image and went to properties (internet explorer here at work :banghead: ) and paste that into your [IMG] tags.

Or if you are using Google Chrome you just right click the picture and select Copy image URL. Then when you are posting click the Img icon at the top of the post. And make sure the end of the URL has a .jpeg or .gif or whatever file format you are using. You can always click preview first to make sure it worked.
Here is an example of WoW's dancing snowman (aka Jivestick).

Thanks gentlemen, that's all cleared up. I hadn't clicked the "image only (no link)" box in Picasa, and so I was using the wrong line when I was trying to embed the image.

I appreciate all the swift replies and offers for help. It makes a person feel like others care. :bananas:

Now, let's get on with our winter... supposedly it's gonna be dry to start, then above normal again.

(By the way, I'm impressed with all the knowledge about computers and whatnot there is out there.)

Cheers! :drinks:

Not as much new snow as I expected. Some wind effect, but it was good. Exercise, pictures, solitude, and a few turns.

Season's first wind slab :wink:

The teasers have been nice and the snow on Oct 7-8th was awesome but I'm just going to come out and say it. Winter officially starts tonight! :bananas:

Sold my rock-mojo and I don't want to risk destroying the artifact (195)... or a knee, my skull, etc... :shock:
:idea: Perhaps I'll drag the noboard along for a Sunday hike and see what turns up...

Got up for some quick turns today see what I could find. Rode Alta and stuck to the groomed with a few slashers on the side. Not a lot of snow up there new or old. You would think based on how much is in my front yard there would be more up high but I didn't find it. Snow was light and not very supportable. Checked out the slick crust found on aspects that still held October snow. It was slick, snow was too light to bond and propogate but sluffs were easy and skinning on something steep with that crust would not be fun. If the snow set's up tonight I would suspect it would be easy to find a shallow pocket or two. Snow was blowing pretty good loading E Aspects from what I could tell. Tomorrow should be better and theres plenty of groomed stuff out there to have fun and get some excercise. Take Care.
