Independence Mine

  [Other] - 5:00 PM, Fri Sep 23, 2016

3" heavy wet snow at the visitor center, light dusting at the gate. MSSC placed survey stakes along the road and moved our new groomer to the trail head. Forecast is for colder temps and snow shower for the next few days. Get those skis ready!

Hatcher Pass

  [Other] - 11:00 AM, Fri Sep 23, 2016

It begins. ca. 5 inches heavy wet snow up in the pass itself. I drove to the final pullout going up, then skied from there. I skied in a great classic loop around the pass and on the road above Summit Lake, which should last for a few days. Eminently skiable in my opinion.

(I'll put up pictures of here and looking toward the mine in the FB version of this post, fwiw.)
