General Conditions

A break in the storm revealed nice early season snow coverage on the upper mountain.  Height of snow at Old Ski Bowl measured nearly 70cm.  Surface conditions were a dusting of light snow over a stout crust.  This supported the weight of a skier, but was punchy out of skis.  Boot penetration was around 30 centimeters.  No avalanche activity observed.
