Warm down low but got nice and cold/wet around 7500 feet or so. No snow fell during the day and sunshine poked out intermittently. Windy on the ridges seemingly from the west/ SW but swirinling so hard to tell.

Snow Characteristics Comments

Smooth and buttery.  Wind and thick snow filled in every track and conditions were excellent for powsurfing and snowboarding.  No movement or suspect looking areas in the zones we rode.  Mostly stayed in N and NE facing sheltered terrain above 8400 ft.  Nice reset.. even with such little snowfall. 

More snow and wind overnight could make things interesting.  I saw tons of wet activity down low in the usual places near the dugway, south of the dugway and near blind hollow.  Sad to see this rain messing up our nice snowpack in lower areas.
