HS 20cm. Good pow on hardpacked K-hard base. Saw what might be a sz 1 wet sluff. It could also be tracks from the kid on his crazy carpet. Did a beacon sweep and picked up a signal. Ended up tailing a stranger on his phone to the parking lot. Oops. Started an ECT on a N aspect at 1000m, 45deg slope but I got distracted by somebody's dog halfway through cutting the back wall. We wrestled in the snow and ended up sliding to the bottom. So...super touchy snow, avoid it. (Thank you forecasters for all you do. Enjoy the off season!)
