Written Report:
We drove up Whitewater a couple miles and found over a hundred trees over the road. Once over and under that mess we were able to tour up to near Jefferson Park. Long day of warm wet snow up to 5000. Once above that elevation we were able to enjoy North facing slopes with high quality snow found away from the ridge tops. The ridges had wind slabs but the switch in wind direction to out of the east even came to a complete stop for wonderfully calm conditions by mid day.
