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.
