Hard to say, still early. It was still frozen drizzle this morning at 6400 ft, might have been snowing up higher, however, with the inversion it was probably even warmer up top

we rode up here yesterday on the east side of the hwy out and all around two top. snow is pretty scarce for the most part. getting off trail wasnt even an option at lower elevation, on average maybe a foot. we were able to find some good pockets on the leeward side of two top in the trees... almost waist deep but the snow varied sooo much. lots of wind blown up top, crusty. we even got some 12” fractures in the trees. dig down and take a look if you go. that weak layer of sugar was super noticable

Meant to update this yesterday, buy hey, it's Xmas time ... picked up nine inches on Saturday, west coast snow, pretty heavy stuff. Looks like the steep slopes could be a train wreck this winter. If the forecast pans out, looks like we'll be right on schedule for some decent riding for the holidays. Looks like we'll be socked in this weekend... we'll see
