When we got there, the snow was within a short walk (couple hundred feet maybe?) of the tram house and it was snowing hard but by the time we skied down to end the day about the lower 1/4 of the mountain was POURING rain so the snow was beyond mank. Like Elmer's glue turns below the cloud line.
The top was really, REALLY good though. Deep, surfy, soft and not grabby or too wet at all. It was crazy how much it felt like the middle of winter up there, then once we came down it was summer again.
I am getting my buddy's flikr account info who took all the pics, once I have his links I'll make a thread and share all the goodies with you guys. Sorry for the bitchiness but I can't stand it when people talk about touring like it's impossible, or you have to be an unwashed hermit living in a teepee in the woods to make it happen. Not true. Anyone can do it if they aren't into making excuses for themselves. :)
