Great day, foggy towards the end, few moguls, hella powder, short lift lines, and snowing all day, today was a good day

Great snow today and almost no lift lines. Power was out for about 20 mins and some lifts were running (slower) on generators. But no major issues and overall a great day.

The snow is tracked out mostly but still great snow. Light and fluffy. Like skiing on velvet!

Power out. Heard from employee on lift that there was a PSE outage and also fallen tree on backup generator.   Crystal opened Chinook Express for a few hours for FREE as a consolation prize to the diehards who waited.  Snow was sick, at least the 18

Too good to break early! Super windy in morning and a bit wet but calming down and drying up. Awesome off piste. Double D's have good coverage. Lines reasonable! Carpe Diem :-)

Upper half is boss, both groomers and off piste.  Mid to base is like spring skiing on the sunny spots while areas in the shade are a bit icey.

Actually Campbell Basin is quite nice.  Deep and fresh.  I hadn't made it there before my earlier post.

Best stuff has been 3 inches of dense snow on hard pack.  Warmer than it should be.  Fogged in at mid mountain.  Green valley/snorting elk bowl are not bad.

Super Cold! The groomers were all awesome. A light dusting of snow made it very quick. Visibility was garbage by the end of the day as the fog rolled in. Was starting to snow as we left gonna be real good tomorrow. Encountered this sweet Winter Raper van in the lot so it was worth it.

Around 7-12 over the past couple days and still coming down. Crusty underneath low density pow, very thin cover off piste sketch when you make a hard turn

Blue bird and like 43! Snow was like spring. Groomers where quick. Slushy in some spots in the sun. Overall sick day! Need some more soon though the exposures are a little scary.

Started off great in the morning but as soon as the sun came out, the snow started to get extremely heavy. Groomed runs were mainly packed/icy. By end of day you could see bare spots on the mid-upper mountain. In need of some new snow.

Lines at crystal were out of control.  Spent most of the day in line.  Northway lift line was an hour wait.  Stay away-this mountain is lacking operations and does not know how to handle capacity issues.  Last year for season pass.

Traffic galore heading up to Crystal for rain and one inch of powder.  Rain and the base up to mid mountain.  Poor conditions.

No 'crack of noon club' this time. Up early for some small powder stashes, horrific ice skiing, but early morning view of Mt. Rainer was spectacular.

The snow was pretty nice yesterday at Crystal. There was 4 inches of powder on the top, but ice underneath. So every time I made a hard turn I could feel the ice scrape against my skis. It was still really fun in the morning though.

Hit up Crustal on New Year's Day. It was icy hard packed with some exposures. Be careful as it is sketchy. High Campbell Chair and Hamburger were open and had a lot of rocks exposed. (See photo). It was a sunny day so it wasn't a bust but lots of traffic for the day off. Would recommend waiting until the next big snow storm before heading up. But Snoqualmie pass holders ride free so if you got a pass might as well put it to use!

Skied on 12/24. Sorry for the late report here, better late than never right?

The weather: gorgeous, clear blue skies, light/nonexistent winds. Temps hovered in the 20s, although the strong winter sun made the shade feel quite cool in comparison. 

The snow: OK, better than expected considering it rained at the bottom the day prior. Found a few inches of soft snow on a nice, not icey base in upper green valley (near north back entry). Powder bowl off high campbell also had some nice lines once  you got off the icey+rocky ridge. However lower runs off Rex were ice and mogul city by early afternoon. 

Overall, good to ski and I didn't regret going. Although they definitely need a lot more snow and continued cool temperatures to prevent the icey base from rising up mountain.
