Written Report:
Todd Lake was beautiful today! Saw lots of surface hoar on our way from Dutchman in the various meadows, but not so much once we got up into the trees around Todd - not even really on the more open faces.

Spent the whole day on the West side of the lake.

Did not dig a pit but it was obvious that there is still a rain crust hanging out maybe 6-10" below the surface?

Skied one South face and it was SUPER crusty and a bit icy. Made our way around to the some East facing terrain up on the ridge, and it was much more enjoyable.

Left Todd Lake around 11am, but it was already starting to warm up quite a bit.
