Board cut in the morning released at least a foot plus of sluff that ran 100ft or so skier/boarders right of Rex and gained momentum with the steepness of the terrain. Skiers left of Rex also had some point releases that covered some sections of the cat track. Especially around the Breakover vicinity. Sunnyside over to Iceberg was money. The snowpack on Upper E was bomber after ski/board cuts produced very little. Taking what I observed and comparing it with the telemetry was interesting this morning. By days end patrol was bombing the areas accessed off 6. Sounded like Powder Bowl. November 15, 2006 at 7:40 pm #591970 IridePow 288 Posts Looks $$$. Thanks for sharing.
