Jan 18, Armageddon at the Pass

Well, according to the news, Snoqualmie Pass is covered in ice and rain.   Thankfully, the news is wrong, and the Pass has not dissolved under a deluge of rain.  What we did have was consistent temps around twenty degrees.  We had some frozen rain, but more like graupel.  Not snow, but frozen pellets and a lot of wind compacting it.   Probably about 8 inches of graupel covered by snow as today went on.  Skied fast and smooth!   Made a lap at Hyak with Ed, Francine, Scott and Diane.   Skiing was good enough for Francine and I to do another lap.

Ed Sewall, fast and smooth on the splitboard
