Mild temps made for damp snow at lower elevations. Snow was considerably lighter up high...until greenhousing changed that. More snow than I had anticipated, especially down low. Spongecake mashed potatoes.

Comments: 

Pretty decent skiing and snow machining today considering the mild temps. The area we traveled went through a natural avalanche cycle on steep north through east facing slopes. These were in the newest storm snow. I was surprised to see how much snow we have gotten since last week since I haven't been out in a while. The Uintas are plastered with snow and the terrain is as filled in as I've ever seen it.
