Skied and early run on Tincan today, maybe 8 inches of new snow at the bottom with
a bit more up around treeline. Winds were light down low and moderate at treeline
and seemed to be increasing throughout the morning.
We skied one of the alder runs on off the North Side of Tincan. There were no
signs of wind effect yet and the new snow was still soft (fist) even up high. Our
big observation of the day was cracking throughout the run top to bottom. The
weakness was very sensitive and we fractured each pitch, but couldn’t get anything
to run. It was failing down at the new snow interface.
