A little bit of a late report today; had to get out and enjoy on this sunny day before the rain comes tomorrow (and it looks like there could be pretty heavy rainfall, too). Good snow on the slopes; some spring stickiness lower down, but not bad at all considering the time of year.

It's time to be careful about cracks, too--lots of eastern slopes have cracked and are sliding. Throw a little fresh snow on top, and it's easy to fall in (and word is that at least one international guest did in fact go up to his shoulders). As things get warm and rain starts to fall, it can be dangerous as well. Cracks and gliding can develop into full-on slides to the ground. Time to think about where you're skiing when you're not skiing on the groomed....
