I followed some locals around and we were rewarded for waiting for the backside to open around 10:30 am.

We climbed up High Eddies and were rewarded with fun powder turns.

The snow was a bit upside down and you could feel it when you sank in, but it was still great powder skiing.

I stopped skiing at noon and hit the road to Squaw Valley, CA for the next storm that just dropped 6″ there…
