By Greg Whittaker
Mountain 2 Sound Outfitters

Working at a ski and snowboard shop when people are skiing is so fun (and busy) we have been neglecting our reporting so wanted to catch up.

We know a lot of you have been up to our regional mountains and are having a blast. We are seeing a lot of damage from rocks, so know there are still hidden rocks under the snow that has fallen during the early part of December.

That said, there are also deep snow hazards including tree wells, so make sure you ski with a buddy and keep an eye on each other if you venture off piste (a ski run of compacted snow).

David Levin, ski tech, reports on Crystal on Monday, “Crystal got a great refresher over the weekend coating the 2 feet of powder they got last weekend. The snow is super fluffy and light but it is still heavy enough to slow you down when it gets deep.
