Baldy Shoulder opened around 11 am for the first time all week and was the best snow we found all day and took 2 runs.
It wasn’t blower but it was soft and deep.
All and all a fun day.
Utah needs the water content and we will take it!
Everything is filled in. Devil’s Castle has a huge avalanche crown in the Apron.
The backside obviously has serious wind loading and hammering. Hopefully, the snowpack will stabilize and those areas can open but the snow will likely be less than ideal.
More snow in the forecast though so things will get going again!
