The cold flow was still streaming out of the North this morning, with the peak temps. cold enough to be sure your face was covered.  The sky was overcast and the visibility was variable, which all combined to preserve the goods that had been deposited by the recent impulses.  The Groomers were, once again, off the charts excellent, and the off trail was providing soft snow on all exposures, with only minimal contact with the old layer.  The interference patterns have been mitigated for the most part, but the rumble still exists in the high traffic areas.  The clouds moved off later in the afternoon, but the cold temps kept the snow from setting up in any serious way.  Tomorrow, look for the Groomers to be killer again, and the off trail still will be soft and blastable on most exposures.  We will have to wait and see what happens with the Sun as it moves across the exposed areas, so get to those sensitive shots early to get them before they set up.  The High North will still hold up all day, but the lower mountain will get the warmth later in the day.  I was DSC00594unavoidably detained from getting up on the hill today, but I will be there for the first Boat, and I will get the first hand look.  Here is a shot of some interesting wind slab that was happening last week.  I love the way the wind sculpts the snow into these surface patterns.  See you in the AM.  Peace Out!!
