For the last three days i've been hanging out with the folks from the Alaska Avalanche Information Center in Valdez, Alaska.  I can't say enough about the professionalism of these folks, and our instructor who is from Stevens Pass, WA.
I would even say that Thompson Pass is worse off than the front range.  However, after this recent storm event it looks like Hatcher Pass has faired the best.  Positive vibes and prayers to all involved in the recent avalanche event on Hatch Peak.

Above is a pic of me geeking out with some snow crystals; observing surface hoar formation in our full profile pit.  Hopefully we'll get some new snow and low pressure soon.  I'm tired of clear and cold...
