Written Report:
The little bit of new snow (approx. 4-5 cm.) and cold temperatures (high of -.5 C at 3 pm at 6500 ft.) felt refreshingly like winter again. The new snow had been blown around quite a bit by variable wind. It appeared that the overnight wind had been from the West, but today we experienced Moderate wind at ridge-top with Moderate blowing snow from the North until about 1 pm when it tapered off quite a bit to Light. The sky was mostly Clear or with Few clouds on the horizon. I didn't see any evidence of any avalanche problems in the North facing terrain we skied at and below treeline. Skiing was predominantly dust on crust although patches of blown in snow were smooth and buttery.
