Last night when I went to bed I was fairly confident we’d get a couple of inches, but I didn’t think 20 plus was even a possibility.  Waking up to Girdwood reporting 23 inches with sunny skies and it doesn’t seem far from a perfect day, but with the thanksgiving rain crust lurking it was actually tough to think of anywhere steep enough to make turns and not get us buried.  We opted for Eddies, and weren’t too sure we’d even make it after being greeted with the small naturals pictures above.  We stuck to the trees though, experienced rolling collapses across nearly every slope but didn’t see anything move.  A bit spooky, but very interesting, with some fantastic skiing in the trees.  Hoping to get out again tomorrow, think it may be stormy though.
