Wildcat reported 17 inches on Wednesday and each day after had a few inches. Wind was not bad relative to how it can get in the Ravine. Snow was wind blown, but the turns were fresh. Light was flat until we strapped in for the first run.... then we got some fun in the sun.
Route: Skinned up the Ravine trail and booted up from Little Headwall. Took a bunch of runs through Right Gully.
We were cautious due to avalanches in the previous days... one death. Bummer. But overall a great day hiking and riding with friends.

5 inches on top of Thursday's 60 F. Cloudy, snowy, and sunny.
We awoke to 5 extra inches and a wine headache. Pleasant refresh to the trees. Got some 1st tracks early. Not bottomless turns, but an awesome day to be light on the edges.
