great snow

after that bad rain about a week ago, creating as thick an ice layer you can find in a snowpack, but not as thick as the ice on beaver lake, the addition of new snow accompanied by some wind caused some appreciable avalanche conditions. but ss the snow continued to fall, it has more or less bonded with with ice layer, that has for the most bridged over previous bad layers.

so the skiing is great. avoiding wind deposits and rollovers should keep the traveller safe, and the rest is pure bliss. hopefully the warmish temps of wed and thurs will not too harshly affect this. because we found some very deep, very easy to ski, very fun snow on tuesday, and are looking forward to our next day out, either tomorrow or saturday.
