The Day Was:
The Ride Was:
The Snow Was:
Firm Wet Crusty
Rapid temperature rise to freezing or above, or melting snow surface
Mellow slopes Steep slopes Alpine slopes Convex slopes Sunny slopes
Inside crater of Broken Top was like an oven. Temps reached 40F between 12-2pm. Zero wind. Sunny slopes were soft... almost too soft. Boot steps were 10cm deep, but on occasion sunk to boot tops. We skied steep sunny slopes at mid day. Things were on the verge of loose wet surface slides, but never reached that point. There were no roller balls, no natural loose wet slides and nothing went on ski cuts.
