Good start, a major system is supposed to hit us next weekend. :nod:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Woke up to 18" new (crystal powder!) snow in town...another 2 feet expected thru tonight. Friday a bluebird day forecast, but heavy Sierra cement (another 2+ feet) expected Saturday...good avalanche conditions.
BTW, 5' - 6' new on the mountain.
