    OK coverage out at round top and eback – crescent is barely filled in and looked sketchy. we found that january crust layer with some windslab on top but everything rode very well – consolidated powder in the nooks.

    buffys pics shows what you can get if you go a little farther out the south end of west shore. that was a great day l2r. 😀

    Was thinking about a long tour in the Castle Peak area today…leave a car at the Negro Canyon trail head and then park another up near Donner Summit…head out Andesite Ridge, etc. Way too optimistic…only dirt at the Negro Canyon trail head. Skinned up the south face of Castle – firm snow but edgeable. Super thin.

    skinning

    descent from upper bench lookers right of peak

    and a little lower down

    hopefully some snow this week –we need it

    Ran across some stickerage on local bc quick hit spot. Winds were howling and slabbing snow up high, but the riding conditions were primo. It’s kinda that sweet spot of sorta low tide, but enough snow to go fast and plenty of obstacles to launch on the way down.

    Ok, about time for an update. Its been snowing about an inch or two everynight the last couple of nights, and today I was lookin forward to gettin after it with some friends. We went out to Kit Carson pass and the snow was light and deep with lots of windloading on the ridges. Conditions looked a bit sketch on the drop in, so we dug a pit and the pit confirmed the sketchyness of the ridge

    Column test failing with a few light hand taps (Just over a foot deep)
