Snow Characteristics Comments
It must have snowed an inch or 2 yesterday afternoon evening in the higher elevations. Some old tracks showed a bit of snow on them in sheltered spots and were completely gone in more exposed areas. Yesterday morning the sun was out and did create a little crust. Most exposed slopes are pretty scoured by the wind and noticed some snow being transported. Wind sheltered slopes even at lower elevation have good dense fast powder skiing
