It felt like spring skiing at Gorge today. The day started with soft and powdery snow but became heavy as the freezing point climbed. Some globbing on the skin track. We stayed away from sunny slopes. We did not witness any signs of instability. The last of the tree bombs were coming down and starting some pinwheels and minor sluff. Thank you to the guys parked beside us that left us a cold beverage. Lots of good karma coming your way!
