It was a nice powder day at Timberline today, I went today because they just got dumped on, it was snowing all day, and it says it could rain Thursday. I haven't done a lot of hiking or cliffs to probably know the spots you speak of but I was thinking to myself, now I'm feeling why I heard it called Flatline. I did find some good trees, and a little gully to the right side of lower mustang meeting up with the Flood lift, I had a few good runs, but the snow was so deep that it seemed like I could never get any speed, anywhere, even on basic runs going straight the snow would slow me almost to a stop, I spent a lot of time traversing.

It was good and bad, powder half way up to my knees, some good tree runs, but I couldn't just go fast anywhere. Even on the groom, there was no reason to turn, if you did, you never had enough speed to get anywhere. I was kind of wishing I stuck with the Meadows pass. Only one more trip and it's worth the ticket price and it lasts until the end of May though. I'll give it a few more shots

Meadows was awesome today except for the visibility, part of that was down to my goggles which aren't suited for stormy conditions but there was tons of powder and it wasn't so busy! Visibility was so bad though that I got lost once or twice and ended up going way out of my comfort zone
