Problem #1 Comments

Snow did start to warm up today on Solar aspects and below 7,000 feet.  Just a couple roller balls nothing to exciting.  I am glad it did get a little warm up today so tomorrow is not such a shock.

Really still A+ riding conditions.  I have trouble saying it is good to go with all the wind.  I walked though a lot of wind effected terrain and still was unable to get something to move.  I have to say that wind slabs are possible to trigger.  Besides those lingering wind slabs and some wet loose tomorrow we are really shaping up for a nice couple of days of sun.  With that said with the sun out more people will be taking risks.  So be mindful of that while out traveling.  Cold temps the next few nights may start to facet the surface of high North aspects but that is all I expect with the sun so high in the sky.  No photos today.
