October 27

Still interested in skiing and snow conditions I went to Cardiff, beginning at Reynolds Flat. The lower elevation valley had wide spread surface hoar forming.

Cardiac ridge shows the effects of winds following the storm. Damage was somewhat limited to select exposed slopes, with LSB also receiving wind damage.

The north facing between Little Superior and Power Line ridge had a coupla naturals occurring late in the storm.

Those initiated near rock bands in shallow, more faceted snow

Total depth in the upper elevations remains around 20-24 ". With high pressure back in place, I'd expect that snow to facet quickly, especially near surface faceting from the day-night temperature variations.
