More East Wall News

The same portion of the Wall that was open yesterday, was opened again today at about the same time. The Snow Safety Team spent most of the day aggressively managing the northern half of The Wall. An early morning avalauncher session brought down substantial slides in TJ's Cornice, Hershey's and Birthday Chutes. The storm that is rolling in right now could be pretty good. Having these big slide events in a closed and managed setting significantly reduces our avalanche concern. Opening status through this next storm will be day to day and hour and hour depending on what weather events actually happen. Generally speaking, the slides and another storm bode well for quality East Wall skiing.
