As stated above in the weather report, it was a beautiful day to tour glidden. A new skin track was punched in and snowconditions cooperated all the way to the ridgeline. Closer to the summit, while moving through some open parks, 2 different "whumphing" was noted. South aspect wind slabbing was noted as well. These were the only two observations observed on the tour up. Ride down was about as perfect as you could hope for with almost a foot of fresh. No sloughs noted from anyone in the group.
Side note, the sled in is absolutely, brutal. The road is whooped out all the way basically to the skin track.
Enjoy everyone! Hopefully the skin track survives this new forecasted storm. Stay safe and see ya on the hill!
