October 21

I went into Cardiff, today. Here's a view of the upper basin.

No skis. There could possibly be a few turns made by a person uncaring about equipment in the main bowl. Long walk for a few turns.

I did a quick pit, mid slope in Cardiac bowl.

Total snowpack 12 inches. Some kind of crust, maybe wind, caps things off.
The base is a coupla inches of facets, with damp depth hoar on the ground.
Things don't look bad and as usual the snow varies from place to place.
My concern would be of an extended cool and dry period, which would facet the entire snowpack
