Location Name or Route
Porky Cirque above Snowbasin
I summited the saddle just South of Mt. Ogden on Sunday (Porcupine Cirque), at 2pm. As I skinned over the crest, the wet snow on the skin track was starting to sluff off. I also noticed as I made the first two downhill turns, snow would sluff and keep going. The point is, 2pm is too late in the day for going above the top of Porky lift. I knew that, but got caught in traffic in Weber Canyon. I decided to go for it anyway, but it was a little sketchy.
Didn't see any hard Spring snowpack on the entire route - take your fat or mid-fat skis! My skinny boards seriously dig in on the downhill. Midmountain was more firm.
