Comments: Good skiing conditions found on open s and sw slopes. Major surface hoar forming on 3cm suncrust on all open slopes up to 4700 ft. Sun softened suncrust nicely for great turns on steeper slopes. Sheltered areas still are completely blower with great stability. Observed no windslab formation. Saw exidence of very small loose wet slides on the steepest solar aspects. WARM sun and low winds had us skinning in tee shirts, great day to be out there.
