Skinable snow starting around 1100m. Saturated snow up to 1400m where we turned around due to low hopes snow quality would improve. Heavy, wet, grabby snow makes you feel like a kid who can’t ski again! Tonnes of pinwheeling. CTM14 down 35cm on crust, SP. 22 degree slope west aspect 1400m. CTH21 down 10cm also on a crust, RP. Same grade/aspect/elevation. Foggy all day, temps above 0 at 1400m. No precip, no wind where we were, couldn’t visualize ridgetops. No avy obs. Cool area, will definitely be back to fly fish the Nahmint in the summer!
