       Today in the Bloomington Canyon area we skied Both South east aspect early and two laps on 8,700 ft True North aspects. We found good riding conditions on both aspects for riding.  W and E aspects were still crusted from yesterday with no heating today.  We we’re able to find the Grapple layer that Toby talked about earlier this week.  This layer in the Bloomington Canyon area is about 15cm down.  

    

        A very small amount of grapple fell over night in the Bloomington Canyon area.  This led to colder temps this morning apron 34 degrees.  Finally a very small freeze on all aspects.  at 1200 there was still a melt freeze crust on S aspects.
