And a little better than that up high. There was hardly any base under the knee- to thigh-deep storm snow, which was low density, cold, and very slow. The exit here is always a bit of a chore, but this was the worst exit ever. The sliding was very slow and it could not be skated due to lack of cover and very little traffic. The skiing was better in October.
Met up with another skier and exchanged info. Hope to ski again in better conditions, JS!
