Winds very strong on the south side of Snoqualmie Mtn, blowing up and over Thunder Creek divide into the apron of the Snot. Skied the Snot yesterday and today there was significantly more wind affect. Wind stiffened powder in the apron and into the couloir. Could see the beginnings of wind slab development but not that much snow to blow around. Did numerous hand shear tests as we climbed the couloir but most were un-energetic and didn't propagate. Skiing in the couloir was good wind-stiffened powder, skiing kind of like chalk. Booter and skin tracks were getting filled back in though, so definitely signs of wind transport.
Phantom Trees skied surprisingly well for how little snowfall there has been recently. A few inches of spongy powder kept protected by the trees.
