I've been up 4 times this month so far. 2 of those trips were pan dome, due to the amount of new snow and suspicion of poor bonding.
This trip started with a lap on pan (powder valley to chicken out) to assess conditions. Things seemed very stable so I cut straight to the gate from there and headed out to 10 minute trees for 2 laps there.
Two days ago I went out to Huntoon for 2 laps down into swift creek, then back up and over to drop down the Haulinback on the bagley side. Last lap was back to 5 minute trees. Forgot the camera on that one.
Snow is currently between slush and corn in texture, Daytime temps have been ranging in the upper 50's but the base at heather meadows is still in the 150" range. The area is doing maintenance at the top of 1, so they're keeping the road groomed. The Ski to Sea track is currently groomed as well.
Not that many people hitting it. A few each day, but I can still see my tracks from the last storm day.
Got an itch to hit Rainier on Saturday...
