Had to take Big Tujunga to highway 2 due to a landslide and road closure near red box.
Cold, clear morning, with a few cm of "dust on crust." Could tell what happened from the previous storms...
2/14 storm was all rain and turned the snowpack into rock hard ice.
2/15 storm left a few cm, or more in N/NE terrain features.
By 11:00pm snow was coming down again, 1-2cm per hour, light winds, and 25 degree temps. Skin track was nearly covered by 2:00pm for our 4th lap
Should be great skiing all this week at Waterman, Buckhorn, and Kratka Ridge. The road crews are working very hard to plow and gravel the roads.
Skiing the lost resort
