We received an additional 2” of snow last night, giving us a total of 8-10” from the 2 day storm depending on how high you top out for your summit bid. All of the new snow we received is on the light end, and is not bonding to the hard and slick surface below it. So, low angle skiing continues to be the best skiing with the softest turns and you are not feeling that hard, icy layer underneath as much. We are still advising folks to stay off the steeper terrain particularly in the Notch and on side country missions to the Chin. The new snow will slide, slough and avalanche in most if not all steep aspects and you will go right down to the icy layer. Please be aware of this as you venture out today and over the weekend. Conditions are set up perfectly to trigger slides and carry skiers who are in exposed terrain like the Notch to really cause problems and potentially get really hurt. Bottom line, it looks a lot better than it actually skis right now. “Low Angle Love” lines in the trees will give you the most bang for your buck and offer you the best overall skiing experience. Stay safe out there my friends and make wise choices.
