I had a pretty good day at MJ until my right binding broke and I impaled myself on a branch. (Anyone know how to treat a puncture wound? ) Still plenty of freshies left in the trees off Eagle Wind; the top was pretty wind scoured.

After the broken binding incident I decided to hit up the pass since I had my splitboard with me. I picked up a guy on my way up and he said Floral Park was riding pretty good. Snow conditions were actually pretty varied up near the tree line but lower down it was surprisingly good considering the wind and Southwest aspect.

There was a 3 or 4 inch deep wind slab in some areas coming up to the tree line that I could feel by poking my ski pole through the snow but there was no collapsing or cracking and it was on a pretty mellow section. Lower down into the trees the powder was pretty good.

Hahaha! You corn dogged yourself!

I'll have to take you down Corn Dog Death at Bert sometime. Nothing like riding through 20-30 yards of Punjii sticks ready to impale you...

Those be some good buddies. You saw how long it took to dig him out in a well. Now imagine if someone is buried in a slide. That shit sets up like concrete.

Keystone is packed on the front side. Backside and bowls and trees today for sure.

Getting in a tree well out here can happen, but it is rather rare.
