Dig some pits, get a lot of observations. I want to know what you see. Be super mindful of that deep persistent slab issue. That thing is a mother fucker and a stone cold killer. I would stay away from spots like Lichtenberg. Where things can run super big. I know stuff is stabilizing, so hopefully that problem continues to ease off.

DPS is the one thing that when I see it in the forecast my eyes pay special attention too. Some of the worst accidents involve them.

^^Yeah we're going to play it super safe next week. We're going out with a guide on Monday to get some good beta, and Ale is probably gonna take us out a day or two as well. Probably stick to treed spots at Yodelin or on Heather Ridge when we go out ourselves. That or ride lifts at Stevens.

Tomorrow is looking decent, but if the temps stay low Tuesday could be awesome. Was anyone up there today?

Agreed, I was there on Sunday too and it was pretty nice. Pulled out of the parking lot at 4 and saw the traffic backed all the way up to the summit, so we decided to head into Leavenworth instead. After some sangria,a few beers and wine tastings, we saw the 10-14" snow forecast. Ended up calling in sick and getting a room, awakening to a confirmed 12" overnight. Needless to say it was deeeep today! Really good up until about 1-2 when it started warming up.

Just got home from spending the last week at a cabin on Lake Wenatchee (Bro Trip 2014). Spent last Sunday touring Skyline/Heather Ridge, digging some pits and checking the snow stability. Found surprisingly stable snow on a couple aspects despite all the new snow and we ended up bagging a nice line in Moonlight Bowl. Monday was an awesome pow day in bounds at Stevens. Light and deep for the first couple hours but got super heavy late in the day and started raining. Really good day though. Got back on the splitboards Tuesday and toured Yodelin. Snow was heavy but good turns were had up high. The. The rains came. Holy crap. Wednesday and Thursday were out, but we got back out to Stevens Friday and had a surprisingly awesome day. The top of the mountain had some fresh snow and we ended up lapping 7th all day for freahies. Then the rains came back.

I've never seen so many HUGE wet slides near the highway. We even had a wet slide come down real close to the cabin off Dirty Face that I heard from the cabin. Sounded like a freight train coming through. Scary shit.

I'll do a better write up with pictures in a bit. All in all it was a good trip, but I wish my buddies from out of town could have gotten better snow.

Sounds a lot like what happened to me last year. Hoping the snow levels are going to drop before I get out there. We'll see I guess. It is not a PNW trip without a little or a lot of rain. Fortunately there is plenty of booze in Leavenworth to make the time fly by.

It is looking pretty warm for the next week or so, but somewhat dry. The good thing about all this rain is NWAC downgraded the risk of persistent deep slabs.
