Cloudy today, with the sun poking out at times. Sticking to the trees or taking advantage of patches of sun was smart, as the light could be fairly flat otherwise. Views were still on point (see above).

On the first couple of runs of the day, there was ~1″ of loose snow on top of everything. It must have been windblown? Snow remained good where it was cold and less skied (Expert Chutes), but had refrozen where it had been melted in the sun yesterday (Bird in the Hand). It will be good to get a refresh. Speaking of which…

Snow on the forecast for Saturday into Sunday! See the National Weather Service forecast below for details.
