West Slopes South - South of I-90 to Columbia River

Snowpack: We noted 3-10mm of surface hoar over 10cm of low density snow on all N-E-S aspects we skied Wednesday. In contrast to the observation mentioned in Wednesday evening's forecast, we found widespread surface hoar is both sheltered and unsheltered areas below ridgeline.

Area Description: Various runs on N, E & S aspects above ~6000 feet in Lake and Cement Basin East of Norse Peak, Scout Pass, and East Peak in the Crystal Backcountry.
