Broken Top Crater
None reported
Toured to Broken Top from Mt. Bachelor Nordic center. Visible wind loading on NE facing aspects of the crater. Partner and I decided to ski 1:30ish couloir, which was the SW facing aspect. Couloir was wind scoured with about a half inch of granular on top of consolidated styrofoam snow. Returned to Mt Bachelor by skiing the SW aspect of Todd Lake which was about two inches of snow on top of an icy base.
